Penn State Named America’s Ninth Fittest College
It turns out that being forced to walk up Shortlidge was worth it after all.
The Active Times, which listed schools “that place a special emphasis on keeping students active, promoting athletics and providing healthy dining options,” made their rankings by compiling and comparing data from across several fields:
We evaluated athletic facilities and team sports participation, campus eateries and overall quality of student life. In the end we ranked and scored each important aspect of fitness, health, and wellness to bring you our list of the country’s 50 most fit colleges.
The website praises Penn State athletics and the school’s College of Health and Human Development, saying, “not only is this school athletically inclined, but its students are out to shape the future of health and fitness, too.”
This isn’t the first time this year that Penn State’s commitment to fitness has been received national recognition – earlier this year, the website Spot Me Bro named Rec Hall the top college gym in the country.
