MUSC Wellness Works

Wellness Works Challenge

The “Wellness Works Challenge" is a semester long college competition for the title of "Most Fit College." Students earn credit by participating in student related wellness opportunities that ESL, SGA, and other campus wellness programs provide.

Students will win the opportunity to have their college's name engraved on the “The Cup” trophy which is on permanent display in the Wellness Center lobby.  In addition, students from the winning college also win the opportunity to qualify for speical giveaways and discounts to MUSC SGA events!  

The timeframe will be a 3 month period each Fall and Spring semester. We will track student participation in all of the categories. Tracking will be done through the most convenient methods from each area (ex. Handscans in Wellness Center, standardized sign-in sheets at workshops and lectures, volunteer hrs recorded through MUSC Gives Back). 
The college accumulates the most participation hours (factoring in the total number of students in each college) will be declared the winner.  The first ever "Wellness Works Challenge" starts September 1, 2012 and lasts through November 30, 2012. The Spring Wellness Works Challenge will run from January 7, 2013 and run through April 21, 2013.
