Students: Many students may have received a message from firstname.lastname@example.org welcoming them to their new personal wellness account. Rec Sports is working Beagle Productions to bring the health and wellness software and smartphone application, Healthy U Interactive.

In the coming weeks more information will be coming out regarding Healthy U Interactive, including the official unique sign up for each Viterbo student. Rec Sports apologizes for any confusion and they look forward to bringing students Healthy U Interactive soon.
