We’re creating a Smoothie Bar next semester!

“Money from the 5K Challenge should be used to start up a smoothie bar, which would include fruits, vegetables, protein, and other dietary supplements for students coming from a workout, or just looking to eat healthier. Having a smoothie bar provides students with a healthy alternative to campus dining food, and gives motivation for students to eat healthy after their workouts. The smoothie bar would also be a place to get healthy snacks, like granola bars, protein bars, etc.”

– Alap Patel, Joan Marshall, & Sheel Clerk

The $5K CHALLENGE has helped pinpoint the problems that students see with their school, and has given both the SA Government and the College an opportunity to develop new ways to make improve the lives of University of Rochester students. An extensive report of the 71 submissions will be provided to the Dean of the College, the Board of Trustees, and the Parents’ Council for their consideration.

The Students’ Association Government is the elected representation of the University of Rochester student body. For more information, please contact David Stark at david.stark@rochester.edu. To learn more about the SA Government, visit www.sa.rochester.edu.
