Experience “Open Mic Night with a Twist!”

Eating Disorder Awareness Event

Come share your testimonial or sing your favorite song—and bring your friends, too! Our peer educators have partnered with Delta Phi Epsilon and Mindful Living and Learning to put together this fun chance for all of you to sing, laugh, and bring awareness of eating disorders to IUP. Our goal is to use the power of music to bring together students in our journey to spread awareness about eating disorders and how prevalent they are in our society.

  • Thursday, March 1
  • 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
  • HUB Susquehanna Room

So pick that fight song and fight with us to stand up for all of the men and women who have or who are currently suffering from an eating disorder! At least 30 million people of all ages and gender suffer from an eating disorder in the United States according to Anad.org. If you don’t think singing or playing an instrument is for you, we are also opening up the stage for anybody who wants to speak about an experience with eating disorders. Three of our representatives will give testimonies, sharing their own stories during the event. This will be a judgment-free zone because eating disorders don’t discriminate. They are powerful, and they affect all races and ethnic groups. We will be giving out free refreshments and cookies while our M.C., Palmer, leads us through the evening!
