UC Santa Cruz 'FitLife' program begins Monday, June 23

New name to avoid confusion with other wellness programs

Beginning Monday, June 23, the UC Santa Cruz Wellness program operated by the Office of Physical Education, Recreation, and Sports (OPERS) will be renamed "UCSC FitLife."

The name change is intended to better reflect the focus and goals of programming and services, and to reduce confusion with other UC Santa Cruz-campus and UC-wide wellness-related programming.

The following changes will be put into place at the beginning of the summer term, June 23:

▪ Program title: UCSC FitLife (formerly UCSC OPERS Wellness)
▪ Website address: http://fitlife.ucsc.edu (formerly http://wellness.ucsc.edu)
▪ Email address: fitlife@ucsc.edu (formerly wellness@ucsc.edu)
▪ Facebook address: http://www.facebook.com/ucscfitlife (formerly ".../ucscwellness")
▪ Twitter handle: https://twitter.com/UCSCFitLife (formerly ".../UCSCWellness")

The following information will remain the same:

▪ Phone: 831-459-3051
▪ Fax: 831-502-7079
▪ Mailing address: OPERS E. Field House, 1156 High St, Santa Cruz, CA 95064
▪ Office location: OPERS E. Field House Complex - Wellness Center
