Last week was one of my favorite weeks of the year: Random Acts of Kindness Week! (and for you social media fiends, #RAKWeek)

I first learned about the awesomeness of #RAKWeek during my first year at Babson, when my class steering committee decided that the week would be a great way to spread positive thoughts throughout campus. Since then, we have celebrated the week in a bigger way each and every year, and this year a number of other offices and organizations joined us in paying it forward.

There is something to be said about a community coming together to share love, compassion, and genuine empathy—and Babson does exactly that! I can speak volumes about the spirit and smiles that #RAKWeek generates, but I thought it would be nice for you to get a first-hand account from our community members! The Storify below recounts some of the best moments of last week. Enjoy!
