As snow falls, students clear away snow, lift spirits

A student removes snow from a vehicle.
North Central College student-athletes perform intentional acts of kindness across campus, clearing off snow-covered cars, encouraging others to do the same.

During a recent snow storm, members of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) were outdoors brushing off snow from cars parked in campus parking lots. These good deeds were done without fanfare but some students were caught in the act.

After students brushed snow off a car, they left behind a customized ice scraper with a business card encouraging car owners to pass along a similar act of kindness.
