Hello Everyone,
NEDA week is coming to Fontbonne this week!! What is it? It is National Eating Disorder Awareness. A group of dedicated students set up various events throughout Fontbonne to bring to light the tragedy that an eating disorder can bring to a person’s life, how to help someone with an eating disorder, and more. Posters are everywhere and a Facebook event has been listed. Keep your eyes out!!
So Far the lineup includes:
MONDAY: LIBBY LYONS presents an interactive session on eating disorders from 12-1pm in the Lewis Room.
WEDNESDAY: What do you know about eating disorders? Find out in the DSAC from 11am-1pm and win a HOMEMADE COOKIE!
Something St. Joseph Hall on the 3rd Floor is Operation Beautiful. It is an inspirational post-it note program from a Blog called Operation Beautiful. The Girls floor of St. Joseph Hall helps this blog by posting positive post-it notes!! Hopefully you can see some of the ones I am and will be posting throughout the semester! This blog is especially good for NEDA week and anyone can do it! Just go to www.operationbeautiful.com !!

New year, new people, new dorm, new blog post. There are lots of new things happening this year. Since I am now a sophomore, I have moved over to Medaille Hall, and no offense to The Joe, but I am liking Medaille much better! Since I am in Medaille, I have access to the Griffin’s Nest. You’re probably wondering what a Griffin’s Nest is — it is the 4th floor of Medaille, and it has a kitchen, lounge and games. It is a pretty awesome place. It is open to all students, but it much more convenient going up to it now that I live in Medaille.

My friends and I have really been taking advantage of the Griffin’s Nest. Every Tuesday we gather there and we make a homemade dinner, and we call it “Family Dinner.” ‘Cause if you can’t go home for family dinner the next best thing is to enjoy a meal with your school family. It really is a nice feeling to sit down and share a meal that you made with some friends, and it also has the perks of great dessert! :) Tonight I will be enjoying Shrimp Linguni Pasta and cookies, it sounds good just typing it. So, tonight when you sit down for dinner with your family, enjoy it! Don’t take it for granted!

See you next week,

Elizabeth
