What is the purpose of tweatWELL?

TweatWELL is a unique, point-based social network with the purpose of providing a fun way for WVU students to increase their intake of Freggies. This program is designed specifically for students at WVU. The majority of WVU students do not consume the recommended levels of Freggies per day (5-9 servings). WELLWVU believes the more involved you are with this program, the more likely you will be to consume the recommended level of Freggies per day, thus reaping the many nutritional benefits they have to offer.

How do I get started?

The first thing you need to do is sign up for the program at http://tweatWELL.com. You will need to register with your MIX e-mail address in order to verify you are a WVU student and fill out the registration information. TweatWELL interacts with Twitter in a way where you can tweet your updates, and they will automatically be uploaded to the newsfeed at tweatWELL.com (Please see “How is Twitter helpful with tweatWELL?”). Therefore, it is highly recommended to use your Twitter account or sign up for a Twitter account in order to interact with the website via tweets or texts more easily, although it is not required.

What’s a “Freggie”?

“Freggie” is short for fruit and veggie.

What are the program dates?

The program officially ran from January 16, 2012-April 27, 2012, but you are welcome to continue participating (there just won’t be any prizes awarded right now).
