Res Life Steps UP to a healthier lifestyle

Over a 4 week period, residents of campus housing will be participating in a “Step it UP Challenge”. The challenge encourages students to increase their physical activity by tracking their daily steps using a pedometer. Step It UP also promotes the usage of stairs over elevators whenever possible, which not only improves health but also helps to reduce energy consumption. There are over 50 teams registered and the team with the most steps taken at the end of the competition will win a grand prize. Each week, results of the challenge will be posted. Visit regularly to check out who is in the lead!

This is a joint collaboration between CHEW, Residential Life and the Sustainability Office.
