Join Health Services for the second annual BroncoFit week April 24-29 – a week designed to help students, faculty and staff be more aware of all aspects of their health and take advantage of the wide variety of health-related programs and services Boise State has to offer. The events are all free unless otherwise noted.
All week long the Cycle Learning Center will be offering free daily bike rentals for everyone; students are encouraged to head to the Career Center from 2-4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for some free career advice; and everyone is encouraged to sign up for an annual preventative health screening, which will be held at different campus locations throughout the week (and are completely covered by most insurance plans).
Below are a few other highlights. You also can check out the full list of BroncoFit events here.
