Campus Events Highlights

Every Body Week concludes with two days of events April 15-16. At 7 p.m., Thursday, April 15, in the Dunne Basement, there will be viewing of the award-winning film, “Killing Us Softly 3: Advertising's Image of Women” on the study of gender representation in advertising.

All day Friday, April 16, “Fearless Friday,” people are being encouraged to challenge themselves and others to a "No Diet" and "No Fat Talk" day: Stop talking about food, weight, diets, fat, calories, or body shape and size; compliment yourself and others on attributes other than physical size, shape or beauty; throw away your diet pills, magazines, diet books, and other dieting materials in the "Fearless Friday" bins in Benson Memorial Center. All sponsored by the Wellness Center.

A film directed and produced by communication professor Yahia Mahamdi, "Thank You For Your Patience," will be shown at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20, in the SCU Recital Hall. This Film presents the real-life stories behind the crisis of the workers' compensation system in California and provides insight into the struggles that injured workers face when navigating the system.
The film features two long-term clients of SCU Law School's Community Law Center, as well as other workers whose lives have been devastated by on-the-job injuries, and their subsequent struggle with the workers' compensation system.
The project is the product of a collaboration between Mahamdi and the Community Law Center, facilitated by Mary Novak (formerly clinical faculty at the Law Center and now on the staff of the Pedro Arrupe S.J. Center for Community-based Learning). Law students and communication undergraduates were involved in the production.
