The following opportunities are available to support members of the Drexel community who would like to incorporate more movement into their self-care routine.
The Walking Club is open to all University faculty and professional staff and meets Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 12:30 p.m. in the Recreation Center lobby. In the event of rain, these 30-minute walks will be held inside. Tuesday walks are held with the group. Wednesday and Thursday walks are self-guided. A half-hour of walking can yield immense benefits for your physical and emotional health.
