Live Well at City College

November 2013

Named the first Live Well! College in San Diego, City College joined Live Well San Diego as a recognized partner on November 7, 2013. San Diego City College became the first higher education institution to receive a Live Well designation for its commitment to supporting the health and wellness of its students, faculty and staff. City College adopted its "Step Up to Live Well" campaign as one of the signature activities for its Centennial Celebration in 2014, and officially launched the campaign during its 7th Annual Fitness Awareness Week of November 11-16, 2013. At the close of Fitness Week, nearly 200 students, faculty and staff participated in a campus 2k Fun/Run lead by the college president. The Step up to Live Well campaign includes a fitness map for a one-mile walking course, including the college's many sets of stairs; healthy cafeteria menu options; nutrition education seminars; and behavioral and mental health education and promotion events. Going forward, the Live Well City College Committee will keep focused on three areas: increasing fitness, improving nutrition, and promoting behavioral health. Have you stepped up today?
