Welcome to Health Promotion
The Health Promotion program provides Appalachian State University staff, faculty, retirees, and their spouses/domestic partners with information, programs, and services that help to promote a healthier lifestyle and a better quality of life. Major components of the program include health and fitness, preventive care, and outreach programs.
Where are we?
We have two locations. Our main location is 12 Varsity Gym.
DIRECTIONS TO HEALTH PROMOTION FOR FACULTY AND STAFF GYM
Health Promotion for Faculty and Staff is located in Varsity Gym (building conjoined to the Dining Hall). If you enter the gymnasium from Rivers Street, immediately upon entering the glass doors, take the stairs (down) to your left. (next to water fountain) There is a "Health Promotion for Faculty and Staff" poster, at the top of the stairs.
If you enter Varsity Gym from campus side, you are greeted with the Military Science trophy case. Go down the stairs (two flights), pass vending machines (on your left). Walk across the gymnasium floor (short side) toward Rivers Street. Once you are in the lobby, take the stairs (down) to your right (just past restrooms and water fountain).
