When you’ve been studying for 10 hours, cooking can be a chore. Luckily, 12 students have created a class to make it easy, affordable, healthy and delicious. “Thrive” was born as a project in an Honors Praxis Lab where the focus was on redefining health and wellness. The students voted and decided this was the best way to promote wellness on campus. Dane Goodwin, a senior in the print-making program, was one of the students involved. “Each student was given a responsibility,” Goodwin said. “I helped develop the social media and marketing, other students wrote the curriculum and came up with recipes. We all worked together to bring this class to life.” Goodwin added that participating in the development of the class helped him be more aware of his own health and feels that those who take the class will benefit similarly.
