New campus club spreads ‘kiNDness’

first_imgThe new semester welcomes to campus the new student organization, kiND Club, which focuses on performing random acts of kindness and spreading positive affirmations.“The overarching goal for the club is to create an infectious display of kindness on campus and in the community. … We want to use the concept of kindness to help, heal and educate,” Stephanie Gaal, assistant professional specialist in the Physical Education and Wellness Department, said.Gaal was instrumental in starting the club, which is a division of the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. She proposed the idea to students in one of her Contemporary Topics classes last semester. Sophomore Elaine Schmidt, who now serves as the club’s president, was one of the first students to show interest and participate in kiND’s official founding.“We’re really just people that want to get together to do nice things for others,” Schmidt said. “Taking a few minutes each day to do something nice for someone else keeps you centered and helps you remember what’s really important in life.”Before attaining full club status last spring, kiND organizers wrote positive affirmations on Post It notes and placed them on dining hall trays for their first random act of kindness, or RAK, Schmidt said. The club also posted flyers in the Hesburgh Library with tear-away strips of encouraging words during finals week.After receiving 319 sign-ups from Activities Night, Schmidt said kiND is ready to take it to the next level this school year. The club will host meetings every other Thursday at 8 p.m., during which they will plan regular, communal RAKs. Schmidt said they could be as simple as giving compliments in classes or as elaborate as a campus-wide flash mob dance to brighten people’s day. She said one of kiND’s first RAKs of the semester is planned for Wednesday.“This is really a grassroots club,” Schmidt said. “The members will have a big say in the kinds of events and RAKs we do, which is something that is really cool about our club. Everyone can contribute.”Gaal said the club is also planning a fundraiser with Notes to Self, a company that designs socks with positive affirmations written on them. The company was founded by Schmidt’s mother.“At Notre Dame, we are so busy. It’s nice to take a breath and remember what’s most important,” senior Sarah Very, who recently joined the club, said. “We can make a difference through acts of kindness, and it’s good to have something to remind us.”The next kiND Club meeting will be held Sept. 25 in a to-be-determined room in Debartolo Hall. Students interested can e-mail [email protected] to join the listserv and “like” the club Facebook page to stay up-to-date on organized RAKs.Tags: Kindness, random acts of kindness, Random Acts of Kindness Foundationlast_img read more

Breakdown: No. 24 Wisconsin vs. Troy

first_imgTroy entered Camp Randall Stadium 35-point underdogs. They beat the spread, but it was still a dominant performance for the Wisconsin football team in its 28-3 win over the Trojans Saturday afternoon.A slow offensive start in the first half kept the Badgers within the Trojans’ reach, but a strong defensive showing from the Badgers for the second consecutive week helped UW get to 2-1 on the season.Offensive Player of the Game: Taiwan DealAlthough the redshirt freshman didn’t find the end zone in the win, Deal bruised and battered the Troy defense up and down the field all game to the tune of 84 yards on 16 carries. Deal converted a number of short yardage situations for the Badgers to help sustain drives, something the offense needed on a day it didn’t have its A-game.Defensive Player of the Game: Chris OrrAfter the ejection of linebacker Leon Jacobs because of a targeting call, true freshman Chris Orr took his place.He did not disappoint.Orr recorded a game-high 14 tackles (11 solo), including one for a loss and added a pass breakup on a third down. He also made a few stops on short-yardage situations to help the defense get off the field.Turning PointTroy exited the locker room after halftime down 14-3. A quick score would bring it right back in the game, and the Trojans were knocking on the door.Quarterback Brandon Silvers brought Troy to Wisconsin’s 25-yard line with just under 11 minutes remaining in the third quarter. Silvers dropped back, but outside linebacker Joe Schobert got a great jump off the ball and beat the left tackle, got to Silvers and strip-sacked him.Safety Michael Caputo jumped on the ball and the Badgers would take over at their own 33-yard line.When You Knew It Was OverOn the Badgers’ ensuing drive following the fumble recovery, Tanner McEvoy went under center in Wisconsin’s new wildcat formation.The first play was a nine yard run to the left. The next call was the same play, just to the right side, and this time, McEvoy stayed patient behind his blockers and reeled off a 32-yard touchdown run to put the Badgers up 21-3 with 7:16 remaining in the third quarter.QuotableUW head coach Paul Chryst on targeting calls that led to ejection of Leon Jacobs and Derrick Tindal: “It’s out of [the officials’] hands at times. And there’s no doubt that every coach that I know wants to — and this is for all rules, to make this game safer, no question. And I just want to make sure — we have taken a lot of pride in coaching good football. We want to make sure, I look forward to getting the reports and seeing it and make sure that we’re doing our part and that our players are — we want to be a physical team. It’s a physical game. We want to make sure we’re doing it the right way and take pride in that.”Troy head coach Neal Brown on Wisconsin’s defense:“They look like an SEC defense. I think they’re really good on the edges. That [Vince] Biegel kid, number 47, made a ton of plays. We had a really difficult time trying to block him. The safety, number seven, [Michael] Caputo, he’s as good of a safety as there probably is in the country.”Junior cornerback Sojourn Shelton on targeting calls:“Understand that the refs are going to make some calls. That’s their job, that’s not our job. Our job is to play football, so some calls might be here and there but the only thing we can do is continue to press forward and handle what’s in front of us — and that’s moving onto the next play.”last_img read more
