Oral Roberts Punishes Students via FitBits

Say hello to Big Brother.

Oral Roberts University, a Christian school in Oklahoma, is taking health to a new level by requiring incoming freshmen and transfer students to walk about five miles per day as measured by Fitbit fitness trackers that they must purchase.

The tech-enabled mandate is an update to a previous policy that required all students to manually log aerobic points in a fitness journal.
