Get Mov’in with Moose!

Join Dr. Moose (and frequently Dr. Nessie) on Mondays at 8 am for a 3-mile walk around the Auburn campus. When the weather cools, walks will also occur at 4 pm on Thursdays. For the Fall 2020 semester, Dr. Moose will start his walks during the second week of classes. You can find Dr. Moose or Dr. Nessie and a couple of their Student Counseling & Psychological Services handlers on the concourse outside the Student Center’s Starbucks. Drs. Moose and Nessie know that exercise positive affects mental health. When Dr. Moose and Dr. Nessie are mov’in, they are happy, happy dogs. Masks and physical distancing are required.
