University studies take a lot of time and effort. Students can become less physically active during this time as they spend nights watching movies and sitting for hours at a time in front of a computer and books. Unfortunately, being inactive is not limited just to first year students but part of being a successful student is ensuring that you remain healthy and active, ResLife are here to help.
