Embracing Kindness

The Kindness Club was at it again, this time with dozens of student volunteers (as well as some faculty and staff) advertising free hugs throughout the day. Initiated by Mariana Segovia ’17, the activity quickly gained traction as students saw her designing the Free Hugs signs and she needed to increase production to meet demand… a great problem to have!

Most of these photos were taken in the library during today’s morning break, and it was fun to see so many smiles and happy hugs. Stay tuned for next month’s Kindness Club activity – Mariana says she has a number of ideas in mind and just needs to decide which activity the group will roll out next.
