WoKS Walks!

August 23 – December 6
12:00-1:00 p.m.
In front of Hale Library

On Wednesdays, WoKS walks! Join us every Wednesday from September 13 through December 6 to go on a walk over the lunch hour. We have mapped out a specific route that will take us through and around campus for 2.5 miles. This should only take us about 50 minutes. We know a lot of people get stuck at their desks over the lunch hour but let's make an effort to get moving on Wednesdays! You can take a look at the Campus Calorie Map here. Please check our Facebook for cancellations. We hope to see you there!
