RHA encourges students
to join'allyhood' in event

'Becoming an Ally'
closes series of
diversity events
hosted by the group
Daily StaffReporter
Students gathered Sunday
in Couzens Residence Hall to
learn about the importance of
allies and allyhood as part of
the Residence Hall Associa-
tion's event titled "Becoming
an Ally: The Basics of Under-
standing Diversity."
Event leaders described
allyhood as important in sup-
porting and diversifying voic-
es of oppressed groups. Allies
are typically members of a
group perceived to be privi-
leged or dominant in society.
LSA sophomore Drew
Walker, chair of the RHA

Committee for a Diverse and
Welcoming Community, said
her goal for the event was for
people to learn something new
and feel inspired to help peo-
ple in marginalized groups.
Walker added that though
the University is a diverse cam-
pus, diversity and the presence
of minority students has dwin-
dled since the 2006 state ban
on affirmative action.
The event was the fourth
and final in a series of diver-
sity events hosted by RHA this
year. Other events included
discussions about cultural
appropriation and feminism
in Miley Cyrus' new image
and the portrayal of women
in Disney movies, as well as a
screening of the movie "42" for
Black History Month.
Walker said she hopes these
events change the way stu-
dents view the RHA.
"People have this image that
RHA is just a funding source,"

Walker said. "But we have a lot
of strength on campus ... and
can be really beneficial to peo-
ple living in residence halls."
Participants discussed priv-
ilege and how identities affect
different situations. In groups,
students were randomly
assigned an identity such as
Muslim, obese, light-skinned,
middle-class, blind or physi-
cally disabled. Students were
asked to consider how these
identities would affect them
in certain situations, such as
when applying to a corporate
level job or how they would act
at a frat party.
LSA junior Emily Paull said
this activity made her think
more about what others with
different identities might face,
particularly those with learn-
ing disabilities.
"At Michigan, there is such
a strong environment of com-
petition, people are so focused
on getting the grade and hav-
ing the GPA," Paull said. "Peo-
ple don't stop and think about
people who have a learning
Paull said an understanding
of allyhood is critical to cel-
ebrate the diversity that exists
on campus.
Walker said people usually
think of an ally as an LGBTQ
ally, but she thinks the defini-
tion of allyhood is broader.
"I think an ally can be in any
form, if you're in a minority, a
female or someone with a dis-
ability," Walker said. "Even
just a plain old friend is an

On Saturday, approximately

The walk's goal was to also
facilitate open conversation
about the prevalence of eating
disorders and raise awareness
of the disease. Beneficiaries
of the event include the Feed-

walks in other states such as
Arizona, Ohio and Pennsylva-
nia. The walk held in Ann Arbor

Though organizers planned
to hold the event in the Nich-
ols Arboretum, icy condi-
tions forced them to relocate
the majority of the event to
Couzens Residence Hall. Par-
ticipants completed the walk at
Palmer Field.
LSA junior Michelle Zaydlin
helped bring the NEDA Walk
to Ann Arbor. As the service
chairwoman in the Martha
Cook Building, Zaydlin orga-
nizes service projects for the
residence hail. After she con-
tacted NEDA, with the support
of the organization and the
Martha Cook service commit-
tee, the first Michigan NEDA
Walk was created.
"I have seen the impact of
eating disorders personally
and living in a building of 140
women we see a lot of issues
surrounding body image and
disordered eating," Zaydlin
wrote in an e-mail. "By having
this event on campus we allow
students to easily attend and
learn about the impact of eating

disorders and what resources
are available."
Among attendees included
members of student organiza-
tions such as the University's
chapter of Psi Chi, a psychology
honors society.
According to a study con-
ducted by U-SHAPE at the
University, 27.8 percent of
female undergraduates and 11.8
percent of male undergradu-
ates on campus screened posi-
tive for an eating disorder. For
graduate students, 21.5 percent
of females and 10.3 percent of
males also screened positive.
"These diseases often bring
with it shame, guilt and silence.
Yet, today we are here to fight
the stigma and help support eat-
ing disorder awareness, treat-
ment and research,"Zaydlin
said at the beginning of the
She showed a video montage
