The Body Project
Student Counseling Services and Health Promotion and Wellness are excited to announce the Body Project implementations we are offering for female identified students on campus. The Body Project is a very effective peer-led program that teaches college women how to combat the unrealistic, ultra-thin ideal portrayed by the media. The program helps participants develop and maintain positive body image through a variety of media literacy and self-awareness exercises.
Here are the dates/times for the implementations we have this Spring semester:
