Thrive: Welcome to One of the Healthiest Campuses in the U.S.!
A warm welcome to the new freshmen and welcome back to all of our returning students! I’m Elaine Magee, the Wellness & Performance Nutritionist for R&DE. I write a column in this newsletter and you can come to my open office hours (Wed. 5:00-7:00 pm, Room 130 on the first floor of Arrillaga Family Dining Commons) or email me at email@example.com.
R&DE approaches “health” in the grander, whole sense—health as a whole person (mind, body, and spirit) and health as a whole planet, which is why we are working on future projects that integrate our sustainability initiatives with our new Performance Dining program.
The Freshman 15 Doesn’t Exist Here
Some of you might be worried about “The Freshman 15,” but that doesn’t exist here at Stanford and according to national data, the typical freshman, no matter where they go to school, gains about the same weight as people the same age who don’t go to college. Here at Stanford, you can start or continue eating more healthfully and sustainably while at the same time try ethnic dishes, whole grains or vegetables you’ve never seen before. Enjoy our grass-fed hamburger, cage-free eggs, organic apples, local organic tofu and wild Alaskan salmon!
Healthy Body Image Resources For Everyone!
For some students, a poor body image can create physical and emotional challenges. To support students with online resources and to help create a healthy body image culture on campus, visit Stanford‘s Healthy Body Image Program (bodyimage.stanford.edu) and
• Take the confidential online eating and body image quiz
• Enroll in a 1-unit online course or sign-up for the Reflections Body Image Program
• Participate in online programs: “StayingFit” or “StudentBodies”
