'We Are More Than Our Bodies'

USC students appreciate their inner beauty.

USC recognized Eating Disorder Awareness Week today during "We Are More Than Our Bodies," an event hosted by the student leaders of the National Alliance on Mental Health. 

Students drew their sillouhettes in chalk and wrote a word that best describes their personality inside the drawing. This exercise taught students the importance of who they are on the inside, rather than what they look like on the outside. 

"The goal is to have people come and talk about their own experience with either people in their family or their own history to talk about these topics and get the dialogue started," said senior Megan Goldring, a NAMI team member.
Eating disorders affect many people on campus, regardless of age or gender.

"I think it is important to know that it's not just women," said junior Nicolas Rappo. "It's not just a problem that girls have, and I think it would be helpful to both communities, males and women, for there to be more education on the fact that this is something that affects both genders equally." 

Student Counseling Services and the Office for Wellness and Health Promotion at the Engemann Student Health Center are on campus for anyone who is seeking help or guidance.
