As parent of a "Feb" who now has a PhD in Marine Ecology, I found it interesting to see how many of the "Febs" were captains of sports teams, like our daughter. Because of the bad press about intercollegiate sports at famous sports colleges, people should not forget the role of sports teams at smaller liberal arts colleges. They provide not only physical exercise to be followed through life, but also a positive social setting. Team members do not have time for the beer or drug cultures. MIDD certainly provides great opportunities for potential citizen supporters of physical activity.
