Sophomore religion major

North Wilkesboro, N.C.

“My resolution was just to live a healthier life, eat healthier and work out regularly. Then school happened and I realized that was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Going to the gym is hard with classes. I go when I can. I’m keeping it, just not in the way I thought I would be keeping it.”

Junior English literature major

Charlotte, N.C.

“My suitemate and I were going to go to the gym more often and eat better. We’ve been eating better, but we haven’t been doing the exercise. We’re both student teachers and we have to go to school early in the morning. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.”

Freshman allied health major

Cary, N.C.

“I saw a TV show where this girl came from a rough background and she was trying to change her life, so she would repeat to herself, ‘I am happy. I will have a good life.’ I thought that was a really good idea. I haven’t been doing that verbatim, but I’ve been making a conscious effort to be more happy.”

Freshman undecided major

Wake Forest, N.C.

“My New Year’s resolution was to exercise more and try to be a little healthier. I have been exercising every week, but as for the eating healthier part, I’m still working on that. I think I’ll be able to keep part for a while. The other part will be a challenge. I just wanted to try something new this year.”
