Tarleton State University is setting the bar for promoting physical activity on college campuses in Texas. The university recently earned silver-level recognition in the Exercise is Medicine on Campus program, a U.S.-based health initiative through the American College of Sports Medicine.
TSU President F. Dominic Dottavio kicked off the program last October with the signing of a proclamation to make Exercise is Medicine, or EIM, an official university program.
In 2016, the College of Sports Medicine will recognize more than 50 colleges and universities around the world for participating in the EIM, with only a small percentage of schools receiving gold, silver or bronze status. Tarleton is the only EIM registered school in Texas.
Exercise options include yoga, strength training, cardiovascular exercise, meditation or flexibility sessions.
