A new Purdue study links high utilization of the new Córdova Rec Sports Center with increased grade point averages.
According to Tricia Zelaya, assistant director for student development and assessment at the Division of Recreational Sports, “students who worked out at Purdue’s gym at least once a week were more likely to earn a higher grade point average than students who visited less or not at all. Going to the gym is so much more than going to the gym. Students who are motivated by fitness and wellness tend to have better time management skills, and research shows that being fit is good for the mind. It all ties together.”
Check out a Zumba class, climb the wall, swim a few laps, or join a club sport for a strong body and even stronger mind.
