Pulse's purpose is to increase health and physical activity among students while educating them on the pros and cons of being active and balanced. We aim to promote the personal, professional, and social well-being of its members through participation in activities such as campus and community service, social gatherings, and fundraising. Members are also exposed and encouraged to join and actively participate in discipline-specific local, state, regional, and national organizations.
