Here are some of the positive impacts of physical activity on learning:

Let's Clear the Air...Vaping Isn't Worry Free

There are a lot of myths regarding e-cigarettes (AKA JUULs, vapes, e-cigs, or other devices). Even if listed otherwise, many vape juices or pods contain nicotine. In fact, a single JUUL pod contains as much nicotine as a pack of 20 regular cigarettes, according to the manufacturer. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that can harm brain development, which continues until about age 25. The aerosol that’s created when an e-cigarette heats up the liquid is not just water vapor. It contains harmful substances, including heavy metals, cancer-causing chemicals, compounds such as benzene (found in car exhaust), and nicotine. JUULs and other vaping devices are considered noncombustible tobacco products, meaning they are prohibited on campus, according to UNI’s policy. For those looking to ditch the JUUL, help is available! Call UNI Student Health Clinic at 319-273-2009 or visit online resources: becomeanex.org/ and quitlineiowa.org/en-US/.
