Spreading a Sense of Community on Campus

On Nov. 13, students across Kean University's campus celebrated World Kindness Day and Community Values Day. This allowed students to appreciate all acts of kindness, no matter how big or small. Students were also able to become educated about the resources on campus that they can utilize to their advantage. Organizations such as the Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs Task Force (AToD) and the Commuter Resource Center (CRC) held events to help students celebrate this joyous day.  

Know and Show Your Ribbon

This past Monday, Nov. 12, Helping Younger Hands held an event called Know Your Ribbon, which focused on educating students on different awareness ribbons. Participants were then able to design their own ribbon for themselves about subjects that are most important to them.   

Hunger and Veterans: A Conversation About Food Insecurity

CLS decided to team up with the Human Rights Institute (HRI) to host Hunger and Veterans Nov. 10, an event during the awareness week where hunger issues pertaining to veterans were discussed. The purpose of this event was to show students the reality of what it is like for veterans to be food insecure, since they have a higher rate than the population as a whole.
