Welcome back to campus! There are countless reasons I am lucky to connect with college students on a regular basis. As we begin the academic year, I’m reminded of the refreshing powers of a blank slate; a new start. We all get New Years, but when you’re a student you get the back-to-school reboot too. I’m grateful for it, as it can be a time of reflection, goal-setting, and doubling down on commitments big and small.
Our Recruitment Live Lab!
Last week FeelGood hosted a movement-wide Live Lab for all Education & Recruitment Chairs to discuss all things education and recruitment. You can watch the entire Live Lab or read a summary of what was discussed below.

By now there have been countless passionate and profound words written about the 2016 US Presidential Election, and we want to share some of them with you as well as create a space (in the comments section below) for you to share any that you find motivating, empowering, or healing.
On Sunday, October 23, Erin East, FeelGood’s Commitment 2030 Fund Chair and UVA FeelGood chapter founder, now on THP staff, gave a speech at The Hunger Project’s Annual Fall Event during a session on women, girls and self-reliance.

The first Board of Directors meeting of the 2016-17 academic year took place on September 13, 2016. We discussed the following initiatives, and how together with board committees, alumni, student leaders, and staff we would seek to accomplish them this year.
It’s that time of the month again fellow Feelgooders. We just recently sent out our most recent Feelwhat?! newsletter and it is incredibly amazing. As you can probably guess, with the school year having just begun, Feelgood has been very busy. We recently expanded our Feelgood family having just welcomed new board committee members!
But that’s not all! Click here!! and come and take a look at what we have going on so far!
We are so excited for the upcoming year and cannot wait to see the enthusiasm, passion, and success that everyone will bring to Feelgood.
That’s it for now, Cheesy Humans, talk to you soon!!
