Inspired by seeing students giving out Free Hugs while in Seoul South Korea, students at ECU campus decided to bring it to them. The Free Hugs Campaign was started by a man called “Juan Mann” in Australia to give random acts of kindness. In order to make the campus feel welcomed and brighten their day after the student death, Free Hugs were given at two events before the Christmas break. School organizations such as T.E.A.M., a male empowerment group, and Lambda (latin fraternity) came out for support as well as individuals on campus. The feedback was mostly positive, with individuals stating how it really brightened their day. The Free Hugs gave that reminder of existence of the importance of every individual and how we should acknowledge and embrace each other as a unity no matter the differences.
