Butler University has been named one of the 26 healthiest colleges in the country by Greatist.com, a website devoted to healthy living.

Butler University HRC aquatics staff April 22, 2016.

“With a staff of 25 personal trainers at your fingertips, you’ll easily be able to avoid the freshman 15—or, alternatively, gain 15 pounds of muscle,” the website said. “Butler also hosts the Bulldog Jog, a philanthropic 5K that’s been running for 24 years straight. And the school takes a fun and down-to-earth approach to sexual health through Sex Signals, an improvisational, educational program about sex, and Get Yourself Tested (GYT) Tuesdays—you can probably guess what that entails.”

Greatest.com said it looked for schools “where students don’t have to resort to eating chicken fingers and ramen every night—schools that go the extra mile to create an environment where students have access to not only healthy food but also top-notch fitness facilities, and robust medical and mental health services. And these 26 schools passed with flying colors.”
