One act of kindness can go a long way, that’s why at Rose State there was an entire week dedicated to the goodness of humanity. Random Act of Kindness Week was a weeklong event in February that encouraged Rose State students, faculty and staff to think about and help those around them. “We are inviting you to join us in spending a week to intentionally find opportunities to be kind to those around you–fellow Raiders, peers, family, the community ... the list is endless,” Director of Student Engagement Meagan Bryant wrote in an email. Along with this email, the week was kicked off by Rose State challenging students and faculty to take online training that helps prepare for real-life conversations and connecting to those who need help. This also included introducing #RaidersCare where social media users could participate in different challenges every day. A few of these challenges were ‘Make a Difference Monday,’ which was the online training. In this training, students and faculty went through a questionnaire and then a simulation where they received a certificate. Those who received this certificate were able to put their name into a gift card drawing. Another challenge was ‘Wisdom Wednesday,’ where participants were asked to post on their favorite quotes about kindness on Instagram. While it is important to dedicate a whole week to be kind to others, it is also important to remember everyday kindness; to treat others as we would like to be treated.
