Last night the campus dietitian Stephanie Young, came and talked with 2West and 2East residents about healthy eating on campus. We covered topics on label reading, meal plan deals, food menus, diet restrictions, and much much more! It was great having time to ask questions about our current eating style and learning how we can make small healthier choices like fruit instead of fries or a milk instead of soda. We look forward to having her back!
With so much negativity in this world we need to share the positives. Did you see an act of kindness today? Write about it on a post in note and post it on the fridge.

Sexual violence is more prevalent at colleges compared to other crimes. In 2016, 1 in 4 women were sexually assaulted in college. 90% of college campus sexual assaults are committed by perpetrators that the survivor knows. Sexual assault is a real thing and it can happen to your peers, friends, or even yourself. Know the power in your words. No means no. Ways to feel safe on campus, use the safe-walk program to get home late at night. Call campus police if you feel like someone is following you. Don’t let a stranger in the building behind you unless you are for sure they live there. Seek emotional help from counseling services or physical care from health services. An RA can always help you find help.

Tonight 2 West resident Josie and Cooper resident Sara and I attended Boxes and Walls in Southwest Hall. They both said that it was an amazing experience that everyone should see.
