Welcome!

Hokie Wellness wants to help students live well. Participants can use this Hokies Live Well Tracking Log to keep track of their Hokies Live Well activities. Completed tracking logs can be turned in by emailing a scan, or photograph of this sheet from April 16-18, 2018  to hokiewellness@vt.edu. We can not accept tracking logs before April 16th. 

The first 100 participants who complete 12 different activities, a minimum of three from each category, will receive a free stainless steel tumbler. The tumblers can be picked up at the Hokie Wellness table at the "Finals Extravaganza" event on May 2 from 10am-2pm on the drillfield. Tumblers will be mailed to extended campus participants.*
