FRESHMEN: SMOOTHIE SOCIAL
Thursday, Oct. 23
SRC Juice Bar
(FreshHIT participants only!)
1. What does FreshHIT stand for?
a. FreshHIT stands for “Freshmen Healthy Inspired Trees”
2. Can you describe what Fresh HIT is?
a. FreshHIT is a wellness program sponsored by the SRC that aims to orient Freshmen with campus their first semester at ISU as well as to help Freshmen establish healthy habits that will continue for the rest of their time at ISU. The program works with various departments on campus that host wellness oriented programs and awards points to FreshHIT participants for attending those events. Participants will check in at each of the events with their student ID’s. It is very important that they slide their ID cards at each event they attend! Not sliding your ID card will result in no points awarded for attending the event! Once the program ends, FreshHIT participants will be able to claim prizes for the points they have earned. The more points participants accumulate, the better the prizes!

6. Is it only for Freshmen? (I understand it is, but we’ll have that question, so I will want to maybe put out the info as a pseudo-FAQ)

8. How do you keep track of your participation?
a. Participants MUST sign up via the link located on the SRC website! Then, for each event that FreshHIT participants attend, they MUST make sure to check in/slide their student ID’s at the events.
