HealthyU in 2015

The HealthyU Employee Wellness program provides resources for University of Delaware faculty and staff to address their fitness-related resolutions in the New Year.

The ringing of the carillon was initiated by Megan FitzGerald, vice president of University affairs in the StUDent Government Association, working with IT University Media Services. 

“We identified the ringing of the University’s bells as a simple way to allow members of the UD community to pause in memory,” FitzGerald said.
