The students at UMass Lowell gladly participated at the Sequin of Kindness booth by sharing acts of kindness during UML’s Stress Relief Day fair. This fair, organized by Tracy Moore, Assistant Director of Health Education & Promotion, is designed to make students aware of the importance of good health (physical, mental and spiritual).
Tracy leads a great team of UML staff, vendors, volunteers and students two times per year to help the students to relax mind and body in an effort to be better prepared for final exams. Justin Lawler, Associate Director of Campus Recreation, prepares UMass Lowell’s large recreation center for this well attended event.
Here are just a few of the kind acts that were posted on the Sequin of Kindness board. Remember, a sequin is small but reflects a lot of light, just like a small act of kindness!
