Roosevelt Wellbeing Communities

These wellbeing groups have been established based on the feedback received from the Roosevelt community in a July 2012 survey. These communities are designed to be a network of individuals for sharing information, advancing healthy choices, and supporting each other in their common efforts to enhance overall wellbeing. 

Which ones are right for you? Join others like you who share your goals and interests.

Roosevelt Bikers

Make cycling an integral part of daily life. Learn about Chicago’s protected bicycle lanes, safety and other information. Join our dedicated group of Roosevelt cyclists in such events as the annual Bike the Drive.  

RU FiT

Take advantage of our new state-of-the-art-fitness centers in the Chicago Campus Wabash Building and on the Schaumburg Campus. Make fitness part of your daily routine, and find a partner to keep you motivated.

Roosevelt Foodies

Interested in learning how to cook healthy? Join this group to share recipes, participate in on- and off-campus cooking demonstrations, and learn how to cook your favorite dish … sans the calories that make you cringe. 

Roosevelt Runners

For runners at all levels: Whether you are a beginner, preparing for your first 5K or a seasoned runner training for your umpteenth triathlon, join Roosevelt Runners for the support and motivation to keep working toward your goal. Share tips, routes and find a running partner!

Roosevelt iWalk Team

Strut your stuff with members of our Chicago Weight Watchers chapter and others. Walk the equivalent of a 5K on our scenic downtown route and around our Schaumburg Campus. 

Weight Watchers at Roosevelt

Since 2008, Roosevelt has hosted a Weight Watchers at Work program on the Chicago Campus. Our instructor continues to be Lisa Krueger, one of Weight Watcher’s most successful leaders.  Meet Lisa and sit in at our group meetings, held every Wednesday in AUD 644 (12:30 to 1 p.m.), with private weigh-ins between noon and 12:30 p.m.
