faculty-student meals

by Donna Woodwell
Daily Faculty Reporter
LSA Dean Edie Goldenberg is
encouraging more professors to ac-
company students to meals in resi-
dence hall cafeterias to promote fac-
ulty-student relations.
Earlier this term, Goldenberg sent
a letter asking LSA faculty to tell
their students to feel free to invite
their professors to meals in the resi-
dence halls.
The professors' meals are cour-
tesy of University Housing Services.
Goldenberg has already accepted
several student invitations and said
her discussions with them have
given her new insight into students'
daily lives. Goldenberg has also re-,
ceived positive feedback from several
LSA professors about the program.
Director of Food Services Dave

Prentowski said inviting faculty to
eat in dorms is nothing new. "This
is something which has been on the
books for years. All procedures have
already been worked out."
Prentowski said a faculty member
accompanied by a student can obtain
a guest meal ticket at the front desk
of the residence hall. However,
clerks at the East Quad, West Quad,
and South Quad front desks were not
yet aware of the policy.
The Housing Department will
only pay for professors' meals. Stu-
dents who do not have meal plan or
entree plus cards must purchase meal
tickets - $3.15 for breakfast, $4.70
for lunch, and $6.10 for dinner.
Student reaction was generally
positive about the idea. RC junior
Ellen Klowder said, "It would de-

mystify the faculty. After all, they
are here to listen to our concerns."
However, some students feel un-
comfortable inviting professors to
meals. "I don't think I would take
advantage of it. I don't know enough
of my professors," said RC senior
Martha Meyer.
Meyer also said it is more impo?-
tant for faculty to have close contact
with upperclass students, most of
whom do not live in University
Of 22,000 University undergradu=
ates, only 8,000 live in the residence
West Quad Food Service Produ&e
tion Supervisor Susan Hyllested said
she looked forward to greater faculty
patronage of cafeterias. "We have a
lot of hope that more faculty will
come," she said.

help improve body images

Reggae concert to help San

;aily Health Issues Reporter
A major concern of many stu-
dents at the University is gaining
weight, especially first year students
vOho are ridden with the myth of "the
*freshmen 15," even though Univer-
sity studies show the average percent
:of weight students gain during their
first year in college is 4.5.
Lori Weiselberg, a health educa-
tor at Health Services who facilitates
"Too Focused on Food" - a support
group designed to help support indi-
:viduals pre-occupied with food -
decided to launch a peer education
program on eating disorders when

she received more requests for pre-
sentations on the subject than she
could handle by herself.
The group, Peer Education Pro-
gram on Body Image, Dieting and
Eating Disorders, consists of eight
peer counselors who "have some
kind of interest in eating disorders
and group facilitation skills,"
Weiselberg said. Last night marked
the second presentation the group
has given.
The topics considered were body
image, dieting and it's hazards, and
eating disorders themselves. LSA
senior Amy Ahlfeld and Residential

conducted the workshop, encourag-
ing group participation.
Ahlfeld and Novick emphasized
the pressures the media places on
women to maintain a "thin" figure
and the risks involved in many types
of diets, such as increased risk for
binges, higher likelihood of develop-
ing obsessions over food. Also the
counselors pointed to the fact that
when a person cuts calories, her
metabolism slows so when she
starts eating regularly again it takes
the body longer to metabolize food
and weight gain is highly probable.
Studies conducted by Associate
Professor of Community Health
Programs in the School of Public
Health and Assistant Professor of
Psychiatry in the Medical School
Adam Drewnowski, in 1987 show
the average weight gain of first-year
University women is only four and a
half pounds. The studies also re-
vealed 85 percent of both first year
men and women at the University
are unhappy with their weight. All
the women with poor body images
wanted to lose weight, but approxi-
mately half the men believed they
could best achieve their ideal look by
gaining weight.
The study shows of the 82 per-
cent of the first-year females on di-
ets, 3 percent have Bulimia( an eat-
ing disorder in which a person en-
gages in episodes of binging and
purging) and 9 percent are considered
at risk for an eating disorder.
It's(the group) wonderful. There's
such a need for it on campus," Said
Judith Banker, Director for the Cen-
ter for Eating Disorders
"Issues around body image are
created by social pressures and it's
primarily these social pressures that
lead to eating disorders. By getting
people to talk to each other we can
begin to clear up misconceptions and
myths about weight," Novick said.
Dr. Richard Pyle, Associate Pro-
fessor of Psychiatry at the Univer-
sity of Minnesota Medical School,
reinforced this idea. "I think every-
one agrees that there has to be less
socio-cultural emphases on thin-
ness," he said.
Pyle pointed to the fact that the
median weight of Miss America
drops every year, adding that one
year the winner's weight was only
70 percent of her ideal body weight
classifying her as anorexic.
Catherine Iagnemma, a freshman
in the Residential College said, "It's
hard to deal with insecurities about
your weight and still feel good about
According to Pyle, studies seem
to give statistical support to these
sentiments. Findings indicate 27
percent of college students have had
one or more symptom of Bulimia or
Anorexia at some point during their

concert will go to the San Francisco
Red Cross, to help victims of last
October's earthquake.
Even though the earthquake
shook San Francisco several months
ago, there are still victims in need of
aid, said LSA Junior Susan Langnas,
Campus Governance Chair and coor-
dinator of the benefit concert.
"There is definitely a need for as-
sistance," said Langnas. "People are
still suffering from the effects of the
quake, most importantly the poor
people. That's who we want the
money to go to."
Langnas said the benefit was
originally suggested by Laura
Sankey, former MSA member.
Scheduling conflicts with the band
and the union have prevented MSA
from holding the benefit until now.
"The poor people of San Fran-
cisco can't get back on their feet that
quickly," Langnas said, "all their be-

"Since October, we have set up a
Homeless Fund for people who were
made homeless by the quake and for
people that were homeless before the
quake," he said.
"Many of San Francisco's home-
less live in the tenements and hotels
of the 'Tenderloin' district, one of
the areas that 'was hardest hit by the
October quake," Rose said. "This
Homeless Fund will go to help relo-
cate these people, among others."
Tickets will be on sale at the
door for $5.00, with all proceeds go-
ing to the people of San Francisco.
The benefit begins at 9:00, and
features a free non-alcoholic beverage
bar, courtesy of the University's
food services. The band will proba-
bly rock on until 1:00 a.m.
