Live Well, Learn Well
BU Law's Student Affairs’ Office has joined with BU Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Services to offer an innovative “Live Well, Learn Well” program. Our goal is to improve students’ academic performance and general well-being through small changes in exercise and diet while being realistic about students’ busy lives as law students.
