You may have noticed post-it notes hanging from the Unispan and in various areas of Hofstra’s North Campus. The post-it notes have positive messages scribbled on to them, like “you’re amazing!” and “you rock!” While the idea behind these post-it notes are simple enough, there is a bigger underlying theme at work.
The inspirational post-it notes stem from the organization Be Kind. Step Up! Organized by Hofstra’s Student Counseling Services, the organization’s mission is to make the campus a happier and more welcoming place by inspiring students to recognize the powerful impact small acts of kindness can have on their lives and society as whole.
The post-it note initiative is the organization’s first campaign of the semester to raise awareness of its mission and to make students smile. Students were able to grab post-it notes to stick around campus, take candy and sign up for the organization’s mailing list.
Be Kind. Step Up! is hoping keep the kindness flowing throughout campus by holding more events this semester.
