A new initiative to encourage students to improve their health and wellness is contributing to the transformational residential life experience at the College. February marked the first annual Iron Cardinal campaign, conducted by Student Health in the Jay Johnson Wellness Center with the support of the Wellness Culture 2017 Committee. This fun and healthy 28-day event challenged students to complete the equivalent of an Iron Man competition. Students were given the option to compete as a triathlete (swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run/walk 26 miles) or a duathlete (bike 125 miles and run/walk 30 miles). A total of 109 students participated, with 42 successfully completing the challenge.
