FM celebrated “Random Acts of Kindness Week” February 11-15 with a variety of events including “Pay it Forward” activities; a “Building Peace Class” involving an “Inspiration Kindness Quote Exchange;” a “Compliment Booth;” a Clothing Drive; and a “Be Kind to the Planet Awareness Booth.”

The week was sponsored by the Civility Committee, the Gardens and Trails Club, the Think Peace Group, and the Sustainability Committee.

“Random Acts of Kindness Week is a terrific way to help students and staff understand that one moment, one act, one person at a time, we can make can make a difference,” says Psychology Instructor John van Bladel.
