Welcome from Tammy Loew
While the start of the semester has been quite unusual, it has been amazing to see how a campus comes together in such a united fashion. We’re proud of the work our RecWell colleagues have done to reopen our facility and programming to make sure it’s the safest environment for all who enter, and continue to be amazed at the work done in every arena and department on campus. It is a great time to be a Boilermaker!
In this newsletter, you’ll see that we are still offering the same comprehensive programming for our students as we have in the past. Our nutrition counseling with Jessica Rorick, R.D., and nutrition, wellness, and financial coaching programs are virtual. We’re hitting pause on the demonstration kitchen for in-person events but we have some exciting campus-wide opportunities in that area that we’ll share with you soon.
And don’t forget massage. Who doesn’t need a nice stress reducer? Our massage program is up and running and follows strict Protect Purdue and other in-person appointment guidelines. We have a special going on right now until the 6th. You and students can purchase a three-massage package at a discounted rate. Call 765.496.1788 to talk with Carmen.
Please let us know how we can be of assistance to you this semester.
