The NMSU Library joins the campus in celebrating Aggie Kindness Day. Do something nice for someone else! You can act as a group, a whole office, or alone, in a little or big way.
The celebration starts on Monday, February 6, and goes through Thursday, February 9.
NMSU Housing and Residential Life started Aggie Kindness Day to honor Emily Lein, an NMSU student who died in November. Lein was an Aggie “superfan” who showed kindness and enthusiasm to everyone she encountered.
“Emily’s death was a reminder to a lot of people that our opportunities to be kind come in many forms,” said Michelle Bernstein, Assistant Director of Residential Education and Assessment. “We wanted to give students the opportunity to spread kindness throughout NMSU and the community.”
Participants are requested to submit photos, quotes, and feedback from their Aggie Kindness Day experience on the Housing and Residential Life Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/NMSUHousing and the Library’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/LibraryatNMSU.
Aggies can sign up at an information table in front of the Taos Restaurant in Corbett Center or a table on the first floor of Zuhl Library and receive a button showing their participation.
