Celebrate Your Body week has come to USC. Campus organizations on campus are hosting a series of events known as Carolina Beautiful in an effort to promote positive body image during National Eating Disorder Awareness Week.

The goal of Carolina Beautiful is to help students view their bodies in a more positive way to keep from developing body image issues and eating disorders.

"This whole week is to help people realize how much we do, maybe by subconsciously comparing ourselves to others and how we can put ourselves down really easily," says USC Dietician Kristen Tice.

Carolina Beautiful dedicated Monday as Mirrorless Monday. Volunteers covered up mirrors in places like the Strom Thurmond Wellness Center, the business school, and the Humanities building.

Each remaining day of the week will have a different theme, from Embracing Real Beauty on Tuesday to Trash Negative Body Talk on Wednesday.

Anyone who needs counseling for eating or body image disorders is encouraged to contact a registered dietician at the Thompson Student Health Center.
