Today, Celebrate Kindness With the Campus Community
“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.
Colleagues showed their appreciation for one another and students expressed their gratitude to friends and faculty with notes posted in the Brown Atrium.
Kettle corn from Charlotte-based It’s Poppin proved a popular treat. They brought something for everyone, with specialty flavors and flavor combinations from birthday cake to fried chicken.
Donuts are always a draw. Faculty, staff and students gathered in Lilly Family Gallery to start the day with a sweet treat.
Highlights From Last Year's Random Acts of Kindness Day
"I’m grateful for seeing familiar smiling faces all over campus,” Emma Johnson ‘22, a lacrosse player from Jacksonville Florida, said. “I’ll be walking to class and constantly running into people I’m so happy to see."
