The enactment of a campus-wide tobacco ban Monday has many praising the University for creating a healthier environment for students. But according to health blog Greatist, UT is already at the top of its game when it comes to keeping students feeling well.
UT’s high placement can be attributed to the success of University Health Services, which was recently named the fourth-best student health services program in the country by the Princeton Review. The University also received kudos for its Wellness Network, a campus-wide coalition of students, faculty, and staff dedicated to connecting the Forty Acres community to health strategies and resources.
The Division of Housing and Food Services has also introduced “Healthy Suggestions” in campus dining halls to help steer students toward nutritionally beneficial choices. DHFS also offers a wide array of gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian meal options.
