As a college student, the school year is a very busy time filled with assignments, internships, friends, etc. However, it is important to maintain a healthy body during your busy schedule. Luckily, the University of Rhode Island makes this easy for students. Here are 5 ways URI helps students stay healthy during their semesters here.

1. Healthy dining options

The University of Rhode Island always makes sure that students are offered healthy options at the dining hall. Whether it be grabbing a healthy grab & go from the Rhody Market, or eating some of the assorted fruit always offered in place of a brownie for desert, the choices you make in terms of what you consume during your time in school make a big difference. Fortunately, the University of Rhode Island makes sure that you always have these choices at your fingertips.

2. The massive campus

Since the URI campus is so widespread, it is inevitable that you will have to do a lot of walking every day to get to your classes. Just walking from class to class provides students with some exercise throughout the day. If you want to go above and beyond, take a walk around campus and admire the beautiful buildings and how much the campus has to offer. You will develop a new found love for your school while also taking care of yourself.

3. Fitness classes

The University of Rhode Island offers fitness classes of every kind for students to participate in to give them that extra boost of motivation to stay fit. If lifting weights and using the machines in the gym on your own time is not something that appeals to you, look into the many classes that are available to students and find one that suits you! Information on some classes offered can be found here.

The University of Rhode Island offers its students unlimited access to the gym with many different kinds of machines to exercise whatever you need. Find a time that works for you and your schedule and head over to the gym for a great workout!
