Hello Patriots! November 13th marks World Kindness Day, a global celebration of compassion, positivity, and good deeds. This week, let’s celebrate by lending a helping hand or by offering a simple gesture, as the smallest act can make a significant impact. 

This week…

Executive Director Instructor, Kelly Dunne of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, received a Pat from Zareena Khan, the Assistant Director of Student Well-being Programs who said, “Kelly, thank you for assisting me in creating, and then recreating, the INTS courses for the Well-Being RLC! Every semester I have been at Mason, you have been so helpful in this process, and I appreciate it. Thanks for all that you do!”

Director of Intelligence Studies Program and Assistant Professor, Teresa Gudaitis of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, received a Pat from student Ryan Bibbee who said, “Don’t tell anyone, but you’re the coolest faculty member I have ever spoken to. When I left your office after I interviewed you, I was SPEECHLESS and knew I was SUPER interested in intel and I HAD to take your class. I have never felt like that about school in my life and I can’t wait for this semester to be over so I can experience really doing something I am confident I’ll love too! Your passionate expertise is contagious! THANK YOU!!!”

Student Jessica Bowie received a Pat from student Norah Francis who said, “Jessica is such a kind-hearted soul who is always there for me when I need her as a friend.”

Graduate Program Specialist, Cecelia Kimes of the College of Engineering and Computing, received a Pat from student Venice Chan who said, “Thanks for all the work that you do to run our department and always helping me out.”

Alumni Sabahat Munir received a Pat from student Ayra Islam who said, “Thank you for being an amazing mentor and always supporting me in my journey at Mason. Always guiding me :).”
