Reduce Stress, Stay Healthy at UT
Between classes, friends, activities, and work, college life can be pretty hectic! Even though you've probably got plenty on your plate, you should still find time to be active throughout the week. You're sitting in class, writing papers, and studying - so take some time to get up and move.
From exercising on your own to more than forty group classes and a variety of outdoor activities, there are plenty of ways to stay moving with our Guide to Staying Active.
