Letter from the Hall Director

Happy January!

I'm so glad to see you back in the Hall! It was so quiet without you all here! I hope you all had a relaxing and rejuvenating Winter Break! While the Winter weather is definitely upon us, please remember to take care of yourself. Wash your hands frequently. Avoid sharing drinks and food with others. You don't want to start a brand new semester with sickness!

Enjoy getting back into your academic habits in these first few weeks of the semester and enjoy creating new positive academic habits! One habit you should continue is to go to the Warwick East Desk for all lockouts that happen in Rapp! The FDAs there are trained and able to help you! Overall, have a FANTASTIC semester. I'll see you around the Hall!

That's a Rapp!

Jess Baker explores the historical evolution behind our current idyllic body type, the stigma surrounding mental illness, and 10 was that we can individually reframe the way we perceive ourselves and others. She encourages each person to "change your world, not your body," uses empirical data to explore the correlation between weight and health, and discusses the "Health At Every Size" movement. Baker shows that by learning to love yourself as you are, you can join in a revolution that directly improves our societal structure on a global level. Come ready to challenge the notion tat beauty is exclusive in this powerful, passionate and progressive presentation.
