Greatist.com, a website that is dedicated to healthy living, has named Butler University one of its 26 healthiest colleges in the United States.

“With a staff of 25 personal trainers at your fingertips, you’ll easily be able to avoid the freshman 15 — or, alternatively, gain 15 pounds of muscle,” the website reads. “Butler also hosts the Bulldog Jog, a philanthropic 5K that’s been running for 24 years straight. And the school takes a fun and down-to-earth approach to sexual health through Sex Signals, an improvisational, educational program about sex, and Get Yourself Tested (GYT) Tuesdays — you can probably guess what that entails.”

The website’s search for schools included institutions “where students don’t have to resort to eating chicken fingers and ramen every night — schools that go the extra mile to create an environment where students have access to not only healthy food but also top-notch fitness facilities, and robust medical and mental health services. And these 26 schools passed with flying colors.”
