Today is R U OK? Day – a time for us to check in with friends and family, and to remember the importance of staying connected and looking out for each other in reducing mental health issues and suicide. R U OK? does amazing work; check out their website for more information.

This morning, we spread some love on campus with free fortune cookies! Each had a positive thought bubble inside: what are you grateful for today? Why not call someone you haven’t connected with in a while? It was a small gesture, but that’s all it takes sometimes to brighten someone’s day, or week.

Check out the video below. And if you get the chance, do something kind for a loved one, or even a stranger – it makes all the difference.



Today we spread some good fortune on campus! Listen to your cookies, they are wise and delicious.
