This Friday, Celebrate Kindness With the (Campus) Community

by | Feb 16, 2023


Editors’ NOTE: This was originally shared on the College website, but we think it is worth sharing with the larger Davidson Community – with the challenge that we all consider our own “random acts of kindness” on Friday.  

“Kindness is Popping Up Everywhere” will be the theme for our second annual Random Acts of Kindness Day, Friday, Feb. 17, 2023. No one does “kind” better than the Davidson community. We care for, and about, each other and our students—a distinctive quality that our alums recall and prospective students sense when they visit.

We hope you will stop by one or more of these events and encourage your colleagues and classmates to do the same. While you’re there, we hope you will fill out a card about someone or something that’s made a difference for you. Those cards will be added to the Kindness Notes Display in Brown Atrium.

Here’s what you can look forward to:

  • Donuts and hot beverages in Lilly Family Gallery from 9 to 10 a.m. 
  • Art Cart and coloring pages, Brown Atrium
  • Kindness Notes Display, Brown Atrium
  • Sidebar Beverage Pop-up, near the flagpole from noon to 2 p.m.
  • It’s Poppin Kettle Corn, Brown Atrium at 2 p.m.

​​​Look for other surprises and delights around campus, and remember–not all acts of kindness cost money or require a huge amount of effort. There are many quick and easy ways to make someone’s day. 

Look out for social media posts and check back to this page, where we’ll post highlights from the day. Use #CatsAreKind to add to the conversation on social media.
