Public is invited to Homecoming Open House at IMU

The University of Iowa community public is invited to Homecoming Open House, a fun family event to be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6 at the Main Lounge of the Iowa Memorial Union.

The open house will help culminate a week's worth of Homecoming activities prior to Saturday's Iowa v. Michigan State football game, which kicks off at 11:05 a.m.

The musical group Acoustic Mayhem, comedy performances by Two Guys named Ed, and activities for children, including face painting and the antics of Babaloon the Clown and partner are expected to help entertain the public for this free event.

Women's Center offers workshop on relationships

The Women's Resource and Action Center will offer "Exploring Relationships" on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m., beginning Oct. 10.

"The group will focus on making the most out of relationships: strengthening and building skills that will help current and/or future relationships be more positive and rewarding," says Keri Neblett, group coordinator at the Center.

Meetings will be held at the Center, 130 N. Madison Street, Iowa City. For more information, call (319) 335-1486.

Women's Center offers workshop on body image

The Women's Resource and Action Center will offer a new group entitled "Body Image: Being a Girl in a Barbie World" on Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m., beginning Oct. 11. This six-week support group is designed to explore the role of body image in society and help women feel better about who they are.

"Our society portrays the 'perfect' woman to be white, thin, tall, able-bodied and free from blemishes," says Keri Neblett, group coordinator at the Center. "This image we are expected to fit is pretty much unobtainable. Even images of supermodels have to be airbrushed or touched up to attain society's expectation of beauty."

Meetings will be held at the Center, 130 N. Madison Street, Iowa City. For more information, call (319) 335-1486.
