St. Mary's holds "Love Your Body" week

Posted:

A group of students at Mary's is getting ready to try to help students with body image issues on campus next week.

It's "Love Your Body" week there.

That's a whole week devoted to self image workshops, speakers and events that help students see the unrealistic images in the media.  The goal is to help them be less critical of their bodies.

LIz Busam, the student organizer says, "Perfection is what everyone tries to aim for but what is refection?? Nobody knows so just trying to help people, especially our age, we are especially susceptible to what the media is saying."

Notre Dame is also holding the event all week.

They have events open to the students and the community all day and evening.

Look for a schedule on their web sites.
