Meet Caroline. Caroline always struggled with her self-image. In middle school, she started obsessing over her appearance and weight. She never felt pretty as the other girls and turned to bulimia as a solution. When she was on her own for the first time in college the problem only got worse. She finally worked up the courage to visit the campus counseling center. Between one-on-one time with her psychiatrist and group therapy where she heard from other students coping with bulimia, Caroline started to feel the crippling thoughts in her head cease.

Each individual is nominated and supported for designation as a Pillar by colleagues, students, friends, or others who find him or her deserving of this honor. In the nominee’s name, a gift of $2,500 is made to the Foundation to further research and scholarship in student affairs.
