Wellness Center to host Chalk the Quad Feb. 22

The Wellness Center hopes to inspire smiles and brighten the days of those walking across the Academic Quad Feb. 22. From noon to 4 p.m., the center will invite students to write positive, inspiring messages about body image in chalk along the walkways of the quad.

It’s part of a monthlong event the center is hosting. Called “Love Your Body Month,” it is an education and outreach program whose goal is to increase awareness of a healthy body image and teach students about healthy eating, exercise and lifestyle habits.

Chalk the Quad is one of several events the Wellness Center is hosting throughout February. For other events or more information, visit http://wellbeing.rice.edu/loveyourbody12/.
