Minneapolis Campus Weight Watchers Hosts Open House Sept. 14

The UST At-Work Weight Watchers group on the Minneapolis campus has collectively lost more than 400 pounds in the past six months.

The group will begin a new series in September. Anyone interested in joining is invited to a free informational open house on Tuesday, Sept. 14. Open to employees, students, family and friends of UST, the open house will be held at noon in Room 253, Terrence Murphy Hall.

The next series of meetings will be held at noon (weigh-in starts at 11:30 a.m.) Mondays in Room 253, Terrence Murphy Hall. The first meeting is Monday, Sept. 27.

A 12- or 17-week series will be offered, depending on the number of participants. (With the start of either series, all participants will receive a free Basic Training Cookbook.)


  • The cost of a 12-week series is $144, which can be submitted in three payments of $48. A minimum of 15 paid members are needed. Payment must be made before the first meeting. Weight Watchers is running a special of 14 weeks of free eTools with this series. (Eight weeks usually are offered.)
  • A 17-week series with 19 weeks of free eTools is $186 (can be paid in three installments of $62) and requires 20 paid members. All payments must be made before the first meeting.

For the three-part payment option, all three checks are collected at the start date but post dated for deposit: Sept. 14, Oct. 14 and Nov. 14.

Those who want  to commit to a series but cannot attend the open house on Sept. 14 are asked to e-mail Marti King.
