CSAM Homecoming

October 6, 2018

The CSAM 2018 Homecoming event allowed students to learn more about our center while participating in an activity and answering questions. If a question was answered incorrectly, the student was expected to perform a punishment such as doing a push-up. Students were also awarded with fruits and vegetables when answering questions properly. This event gave students an insight into our center.

Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Healthy Habits

April 4, 2018
Student Center room 417

This interactive workshop provided the truths and myths behind physical activity and healthy snacks. Have you ever been so stressed for a test or a final that you started eating anything that crossed your path? The Center for Quantitative Obesity Research (CQOR) provided tips for a healthier lifestyle, even for when you don’t have time to prepare something due to a busy agenda. We also explained the differences between physical activity and exercise and gave exercise tips to keep you active even if you have a hectic schedule.

Health Snack Fundraiser

April 27th, 2017

The Health Snack Fundraiser was an event whose main focus was to distribute healthy snack options to the students of Montclair State University. Students are usually in a rush and don’t always have time to weigh out the options of a healthy snack or a fast-food item. So instead of students coming to the clinic, we decided to bring a touch of the clinic to the students. The students were able to purchase a wide variety of fruits, granola bars, and other healthy alternative snacks. The money collected was then put towards other CQOR events.
