Wii Research at Bloomsburg University

Exercise Science lends itself well to research for students with so many possibilities to test relatable theories while having fun doing it - from comparing physical fitness of baseball players by position to the relationship between running and jumping to any number of variables involving body fat percentage and cardiac responses.

And Bloomsburg University’s undergraduate and graduate exercise science programs do it quite well, regularly involving student participants from many academic disciplines across campus. The results are often nationally recognized.
