UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Free ways for faculty/staff to stay healthy

UNCG’s Active U and Mindful U, exclusively for UNCG staff and faculty, will return the week of Sept 8.

Additionally, all faculty and staff can enjoy Aqua Aerobics every Monday and Wednesday. The sessions are 5:15-6:15 p.m. in the Rosenthal Pool in the Coleman Building (former HHP Building).

HealthyUNCG, in partnership with Campus Recreation, presents UNCG employees these group fitness opportunities.

Mindful U will begin September 8 at its new time, 11:30 – 12:30 p.m., at the Rec Center.

Active U will begin September 11 at the regular time of noon – 1 p.m at the Rec Center.

Active/Mindful U is focused on group fitness. Classes vary week by week; the first Mindful U session is Yagalates. The first Active U session is High-intensity interval training (HIIT).

You do not need to be a member of the Rec Center to enjoy these offerings. You do not need to reserve your spot for Aqua Aerobics or for Wednesday Noon Ball, a popular time for casual pick-up basketball games through Active U. Noon Ball and Aqua Aerobics are free-admission for employees with SpartanCard I.D.

To reserve your spot for Active U or Mindful U – or to learn more – email iFitness@uncg.edu.
