Eating Disorder Awareness Week (EDA) is a week-long campaign held on campus every February. The purpose of this campaign to bring awareness to the severity and reality of eating disorders, while providing affected individuals with accessible resources and effective tools for recovery. EDA starts the conversation about the reality of eating disorders through various events and activities. These events cover a wide-array of topics including intuitive eating, body image, and self-love. Experts in the community participate in this week-long event. They speak about important topics such as how to support a loved one with an eating disorder, and how to connect with recovery resources. Education and awareness are the first steps in bringing about change and ending the stigma around eating disorders. The mission of EDA is to ensure that no student feels isolated during their struggle with disordered eating.
