promotes eating disorder awareness
By Lindsey Alpert
Daily Staff Reporter
The Atkins Diet, New Year's resolutions to exer-
cise, Tae-Bo and Buns of Steel are just some of the
ways people attempt to trim waistlines and lose
But in some cases innocent diets can lead to
bulimia and anorexia.
In an effort to increase awareness of such bio-
logical and psychological diseases, University
Counseling and Psychological Services is con-
ducting presentations and workshops for National
Eating Disorders Week, which lasts until Friday.
The organizers dubbed this week "Strive to be a
Role Model, not a Supermodel"
"We want to try to reach out and help the
women and men who suffer from eating disor-
ders," CAPS Psychologist Vicki Hays said.
Hays said she estimates 50 to 70 percent of
women on campus, and 10 percent of men, have
had a negative body image perception at one point
in their lives.
"There is a negative impact (from the media),
but it's especially strong for people that already
have poor body images," Communication Studies
Prof. Kristin Harrison said.
CAPS officials said they hope to place a focus
on the prevalence of bulimia nervosa on campus.
According to the CAPS Website, the disorder is
characterized as "a cycle of uncontrolled binge
eating followed by purging"
While purging is generally thought of to be
vomiting, it also includes fasting, excessive exer-
cise, use of laxatives and the use of diuretics.
The week will also include panel discussions
and an eating issues screening.
A presentation titled "F-Words: Food, Fear, Fit-
ness, Fat" will be held in the Michigan Union
tonight at 7 p.m', where medical doctor Sheryl
Kruze, registered dietitian Mirlyn Nakamoto and
Hays are scheduled to speak.
"It primarily focuses on how people can get bet-
ter," Hays said. "We want people to have the
knowledge that it is possible to recover."
There will also be another panel discussion
titled "Eating Disorders: Signs, Symptoms and
Support,' co-sponsored by the University Center
for the Education of Women and the Faculty and
Staff Assistance Program, which is scheduled to
take place at the Union on Thursday at noon.
The week continues with "Help! My friend has
an eating disorder" tomorrow in the Michigan
Union at 7 p.m. There will be a performance by a
Mentality member as well as presentations by
CAPS staff members.
Mentality is a campus group that gives perfor-
mances on various mental issues, including
depression and eating disorders.
"I'm helping Stacey Pearson in a presentation
about my friend with an eating disorder," said Tara
Arrendondo, an RC sophomore and Mentality
member. "Then I'm giving a little monologue
about the thoughts and feelings about having an
The event will discuss ways to help friends
recover and feel better.
"I think the best thing, personally, although it's
different based on individuals, is for a friend to be
there and listen to what's going on," Arrendondo
said. "In extreme cases it will obviously differ. It's
going to mean doing as much as they can to get
them to the hospital if necessary."
The screening, which consists of a short ques-
tionnaire created by the national program, will
also allow participants to meet individually with a
"We welcome anybody and everybody," Hays
said. "It's just a nice chance to get feedback.
Some people may feel comfortable taking the
survey and finding they don't have an issue."
The screening will take place tonight and Sat-
urday morning at the Central Campus Recreation
Building and Thursday at the Michigan Union.
Boat show ahoy
budget gdeficit rises
GRAND RAPIDS (AP) - Aquinas College
officials said the school's budget deficit could
reach $5 million before running a small surplus
The budget trouble was discussed at a campus
wide forum last week, where several staff and
faculty members criticized Aquinas President
Harry Knopke. He admitted the school is going
through "growing pains."
"We are restructuring to run the college more
efficiently," Knopke said. "That's why I was
brought here, to move the college forward."
Knopke said the school is working harder than
it has in the past to save money. An associate
provost position has been eliminated, as have
bonuses for faculty who teach summer courses.
Knopke said he is also studying possible organi-
zational changes to take advantage of expected
staff retirements in the next three years.
The restructuring should save more than
$400,000, Knopke said.
Ten years ago, a S15 million budget deficit
forced the school to cut some programming and
staff positions. To avoid a reoccurrence of such a
large deficit, last year the school sold SI.5 mil-
lion in Steelcase Inc. stock donated to the col-
The school plans to do the same this year.
Knopke attributed some of the school's finan-
cial problems to lower than anticipated enroll-
ment in adult-education classes. The school has
also increased faculty salaries 16 percent in the
last two years.
"I have always said to have a good college
you need a strong library and a strong staff,"
Knopke told The Grand Rapids Press in a
story yesterday. "And I felt it was important
to award our staff."
Undergraduate enrollment at the school
increased 11.4 percent this year, Knopke said.
The school has raised S3.5 million for its
endowment fund since last July, but most of that
money can't be used for operation expenses,
"The things we are going through are typical
of any business," Knopke said. "We are just
going through a small cash-flow problem ... and
our communication needs to improve."

Mast, testifying at the manslaughter
trial of four men charged in Saman-

extremities looking like that at any
other time. It appeared there was no
blood in them."
Doctors kept Samantha on life sup-
port until she died about 7:30 that night.

deaths since 1990 and more than 5,700
recorded overdoses, the Drug Enforce-
ment Administration has said.
Mast testified that when a group
brought Samantha and Melanie to the
emergency room, the girls appeared to
have overdosed on some drug.
"I suspected GHB was the possible
culprit, though I really didn't know."
Under cross examination, Mast
indicated that Samantha might have
been saved if she had gotten help
"Nobody needs to die," if they get
help quickly enough, he said. GHB
