A simple smile. A friendly greeting. An offer to buy you a coffee. A thank-you note for all that you do. Random Acts of Kindness Day is all that and more and it returns to the U of R - this year on February 12.

For much of the day, you will find students across campus, expressing their appreciation and spreading kindness. That will include leaving feel-good notes throughout the University. You might find one on your office door or in your classroom.,  

Random Acts of Kindness

“We sometimes get so busy with our studies or work, we don’t always think to take a pause and just say thanks to people,” says Olivia Arnal, a fourth-year business student and the co-ordinator of this year’s Random Acts of Kindness Day on campus.

This year’s theme is expressing appreciation for people who have had a positive impact on you during their time at the University.

“This year we want to acknowledge anyone who has touched our university career,” says Arnal. “We’re encouraging people to drop by our table and sign a card to any individual they wish. We will personally deliver that card.”

Student volunteers will be set up at a table in the Education Pit (Education Auditorium area) where people can also drop by, have a coffee or juice and some treats. Those who sign a card are also eligible to win one of two gift baskets.

Mostly though, the day is simply about spreading positive thoughts.

“One small thing can be a huge thing, especially during mid-terms. A simple act of kindness, whether buying someone a coffee or plugging a meter, can feel like a breath of fresh air,” says Arnal.

Those kind gestures made on February 12 are sure to be felt for years to come. Students have even discreetly left inspirational notes inside some Library books.

“Finding such a note years from now will make someone’s day just a little more pleasant. Now that’s a nice thought,” says Arnal.
