And the winners are...

Over a 4 week period, residents of campus housing participated in the “Step it UP Challenge”. The challenge encouraged students to increase their physical activity by tracking their daily steps using a pedometer. Step It UP also promoted the usage of stairs over elevators whenever possible, which not only improves health but also helps to reduce energy consumption. The challenge is over and the results are now in!
