Abstract

University students have long heard the stigma of the “Freshman 15” where upon enrollment to college freshmen students tend to neglect their physical activity (PA) regimens or overlook healthy lifestyle options and eating habits. Various components may contribute to this trend such as, lack of motivation, lack of resources readily available near the university, and being unaware of available programs tied into students’ tuition. The majority of university campuses offer opportunities for being physically active but often get overlooked. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the accessibility of resources to participate in PA on one urban university campus in the recreation environment and across campus.
