Abstract

Adjusting to a new lifestyle away from home can be a challenge, especially for students who are moving to college for their first year. Based on my own struggles with maintaining my health and finding my balance with food, fitness, and personal wellness, which I endured when first coming to Syracuse University in the fall of 2012, I have created a health and wellness website designed specifically for first year female students at Syracuse University. Using WordPress to build the online platform, and working with writers, photographers, and an illustrator, I have built a site that discusses topics such as food, fitness, life skills, and wellness. The goal of this website is to aid in making the shift of living away from home and adjusting to a college lifestyle a smooth and healthy transition.

The website can be viewed at: www.orangebalance.com.
