Thank You Professor Wu!

Professor Jiang Miao Wu,

From all of us at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and the Counseling Department we would like to thank you for visiting us. We were delighted to hear about your research on self-efficacy and stress in college students. We enjoyed hearing about your adventures in America; from the first time you saw UNCP to your first time meeting Santa Claus. We appreciate being part of your journey and we will miss you.

National Eating Disorder Association Walk

National Eating Disorders Association Walk Saturday, 11/21/15, UNC-Greensboro

On November 21, 2015 CSI: Phi Sigma Chapter officers, CSI members, and non-members walked to bring awareness to eating disorders plaguing millions of people every day. The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) Walk was a reminder of the struggle people who deal with this mental and physical illness, and how hard this illness is to overcome.

A little over 100 people attended the NEDA walk, and those pictured above were all to happy to participate. Emily Smith (pictured below) created “Team Ginger” and proceeded to ask UNC-Pembroke faculty, staff, and students to donate or walk for the cause.

Understanding just how detrimental eating disorders can be will not only help us become better counselors, but can also help us better understand how to help our clients who have eating disorders. Below are a few facts from the NEDA walk:

Class Selfie!

Joining our Counseling Faculty this year is our newest adjunct instructor Dr. Mary Whitfield Williams (pictured below in lower left hand corner). Dr. Williams taught CNS 5100: Groups in Counseling during Summer II (2015), and decided to take a “selfie” of her class to conclude an awesome semester.
Welcome to UNCP Dr. Williams!
