Be CAT Kind Effort Launched Across WSC Campus

WAYNE – Students in Business Ethics are challenging other Wayne State College students, staff, administration and faculty to Be CAT Kind.

According to a release from Wayne State College, service-learning students in the Business and Economics Department at Wayne State College launched a new pledge campaign.

This pledge form asks community members to do one extra kind thing a day for the rest of the 2021 spring semester.

Attending school in a pandemic has been a fantastic, but challenging experience. Students are grateful to be on campus completing in-person classes. Amid the uncertainty of the virus, they are asking students to step up to the challenge of extra kindness.

The students have set up a station with kindness resources in the first-floor study area of Gardner Hall. Students will move the station to other buildings as the mid-term break completed this past week. Anyone can take a kindness card or decal to share. Also, they can post their kindness deed for the day.

In their research for the project, students learned there are many benefits of being extra kind. A person can enhance their feeling of belonging which can reduce feelings of isolation that might be brought about by social distancing standards. The students found many free resources for their campaign at
