Sit in on an actual meeting, meet participants and the university’s Weight Watchers representative, and receive answers to your questions.

The Wellness Center and will offer discounts to students. For those interested in joining now, the remaining sessions in the current program are open for pay-as-you-go enrollment.

12-week series:
Needs 15 members

eTools is the Weight Watchers online application. Members can use it to
track daily points, look up the points of foods, find recipes, restaurant
points, exercise tips, and chat online with other Weight Watchers members.

Members can pay in one lump sum by cash, check, or credit card, or they can
pay in three equal installments by check. Note: All checks should be dated
Feb. 11, 2010 (the first day of the new series.)

New members need to fill out a registration card. Members who are continuing from the current series do not have to fill out a new registration card.

Those who are interested but unable to attend Thursday’s open house meeting can attend the regular meeting on Feb 4; however, attendance at an open house session is not required.
