One Change was a weeklong series we created to counter letting New Year’s resolutions drift away and to support students in making changes that stick. Instead of establishing overwhelming or unsustainable goals, we encouraged students to make small alterations that could change the course of their nutritional futures. Each day of the One Change week, we promoted a variety of health-minded activities, such as tracking steps with a pedometer, replacing soda with water, attending campus fitness and yoga classes and keeping tabs on eating habits through an online diet journal, My Fitness Pal. Prizes were awarded to students throughout the week for participating.
