UofL named one of the Top 25 Healthiest Colleges in U.S.

From locally sourced food to state-of-the-art fitness facilities to an anti-stress “café,” UofL students are surrounded by healthful lifestyle options on campus. Now, a website devoted to healthful living has taken notice.

Greatist.com last month named UofL one of the Top 25 Healthiest Colleges in the U.S., putting UofL on a list with schools such as the University of Missouri, Stanford, Clemson and University of Massachusetts-Amherst. The 25 schools are listed on the site in no particular order.

“The health and well-being of our student body continues to be a top priority for the university,” said Michael Mardis, dean of students. “We are thankful for this recognition and grateful for the work of so many of our students, faculty and staff that help make the university such a vibrant and healthy learning community.”
