Fitness is a vital issue that affects every student at OCCC.

A Brown Bag lunch event that addresses the topics of fitness and wellness will be held at noon Wednesday, Nov 3, in CU1.

“Part of being successful in college is being healthy,” said Katie Treadwell, Student Life programs coordinator.

“This class will help educate students on how to stay healthy in college.”

Topics to be discussed in the lunchtime talk will include general wellness, nutrition, and the importance of exercise, Treadwell said.

Speakers will be Lisa Vaughan, Roxy Butler, and Khari Huff.

“We are going into the winter flu season and it’s important to stay healthy,” Treadwell said. “Students really take advantage of our fitness and wellness facilities also.”

The Wellness Center has added fitness and aerobics classes to keep up with increased enrollment, she said.

Students are encouraged, but not required, to bring a lunch to this event.
