Good is someone who says, without a hint of irony, that she is hoping and working for "a just society, based on generosity and caring and goodwill."She is someone who responds, when directed to a statue dedicated to Brown men, "I guess there weren't any Pembroke women yet."
The president of multiple campus organizations and a ceaseless activist and volunteer, Good has a resume that would probably require more paper than she cares to waste.But despite her reputation as a poster girl for activism at Brown, she is neither self-righteous nor self-conscious when explaining the causes she has chosen to fight for.She smiles often, sits cross-legged and rattles off a list of her accomplishments without ever seeming to talk about herself.
Here is the condensed version: Good was president of Amnesty International at Brown for three years and president of the Green Party at Brown for four.She helped to found Not Another Victim Anywhere in the days following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and has advocated non-violent responses to terrorism ever since.

Heraldsphere: For students with eating disorders, support seems hard to find

It started, one junior said, with a diet.But by the time she was 14, that diet consisted of only one apple and one salad each day combined with intense exercise to burn them off.Her weight never changed significantly, so no one thought anything was wrong.
By the end of high school, her eating habits were back to normal, but that's when the purging began.She began spending three to four hours at the gym each day and soon started vomiting and using laxatives.
Now the founder of Rhode Island's first chapter of the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD), the junior said that until now her time at Brown has been characterized by a lack of support.
A self-identified bulimic, the student estimates that during her first year, she took 20 to 25 laxatives, six to ten diet pills and five to six water pills per day.She was also vomiting three to four times per day, she estimates, and exercising compulsively.
"When I was set on a binge," she said, "no one could stop me." She stole food from her roommate, her dorm's fridge and from the supermarket.At one point, she was going out at 3 a.m. to steal food from trashcans."I felt like a complete animal," she said.
In all this time, she never gained or lost more than 10 pounds."No one noticed," she said.
By last winter, she was nearly suicidal.That's when she left Brown for an inpatient program, which she described as 18 hours of therapy a day.She returned to Brown last spring, but now doesn't believe she was ready.
"All I wanted to do was go back to my addiction," she said.
On campus, she said she felt "no one was here for me." Health and Psychological services were helpful, she said, but not enough.She tried going to Overeaters Anonymous meetings, she said, but was the only bulimic as well as "the only person under 40."
It was at this point in February that she founded the ANAD chapter.
In addition to supporting the formation of support groups, ANAD maintains a hotline, referral lists of therapists and inpatient/outpatient programs and distributes information about eating disorders, according to the organization's Web site.
Since the chapter's founding, attendance has been sporadic, she said, with rarely more than a few people showing up, including some Brown students.
"Statistically speaking, there should be 600 girls at those meetings," she said.The ones who do come, she said, often "don't know where to start."

Simmons had planned to announce her long-deferred decision on the arming of Department of Public Safety officers by the end of the academic year, she wrote in a May 20 e-mail to students, faculty and staff.But the June reorganization of the Providence Police Department into smaller, more community-oriented districts requires further consultations with the city - and further delays to her announcement, she wrote.
Since June 16, the PPD has operated under its new community policing program, which divides the city into nine police districts, each of which is the sole and exclusive responsibility of its lieutenant and his officers.
Under the previous system, the city was divided into four districts, with one lieutenant responsible for all of them during his eight-hour shift.
