Nutrition & Exercise

Did you know?

Less than 5% of ODU students report eating the recommended 5+ fruits/vegetables per day (2011 ODU National College Health Assessment).

47% of ODU students reported meeting the recommendation for moderate-intensity exercise, vigorous-intensity exercise, or a combination of the two (2011 ODU National College Health Assessment).

Importance of Good Nutrition & Exercise

A healthy diet and exercise benefits students both in and outside the classroom!
