“With summertime often comes a reminder to get outside and a renewed motivation for healthy living,” says Academic Dean and Interim Campus President Amanda Holmes. “We are always grateful for the opportunity to support our Florence community, and this June, we're excited to host the community while promoting something we are all passionate about here at Virginia College—personal health. As a campus, we are dedicated to encouraging one another as well as our neighbors toward healthy choices, and we hope everyone will join us to take a step toward a healthy lifestyle.”
