Week of March 5 – Care yo’ self

In anticipation of Spring Break, campus is abuzz with stories of students engaging in crash diets and spending all of their free time in the gym. During the week before Spring Break, Team Kenan invited classmates to sit on the couch to talk about how they care for themselves and the ways in which Duke does or does not support them. Conversations revealed unspoken pressures on campus to strive for an ideal, how college life has affected their self image, and how their lifestyle has become healthier (or not) as a result of Duke campus culture.
