Gabby Geerts answers – “What is SLUDA? “

31 Oct

SLUDA.  What’s that all about?  Yes, it is the catchy acronym for Saint Louis University Dietetic Association, but it stands for much more than that.  And what better way to highlight this than the classic grade school acrostic?

Service.  It is important for us to give back to the community through charitable acts and volunteering.  Our involvement is focused around health and well being.  This year we are working with Campus Kitchen (http://www.campuskitchens.org/national/) to help combat hunger in the Saint Louis Community and are coordinating an Empty Bowls (http://www.emptybowls.net/) fundraiser.

Leadership.  Within the group there is a handful of positions available for students to become directly involved in leadership roles but indirectly the entire group leads by example through our acts of service and efforts to raise awareness of health related issues.

Unity.  SLUDA members range from freshman to senior to graduate students but one would never guess that based on the cohesiveness of the group.  We work, play, study, and often eat together.

Driven.  Whether it be in the classroom, an intramural game, or doing the dishes in Fresh Gatherings, effort is always at 100%.  This attitude can be seen through our commitment to making SLUDA not only a legitimate group but also an influential group on campus.

Awesome.  Really no need to elaborate on this one other than the fact that all the members, meetings, and group outings are awesome.
