Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) academic honors society kick-started their year of service by hosting an event in alignment with their new 2016 theme “Embracing our community one mind at a time”, during National Hug Day. PTK members congregated in the 1st floor lobby, handed out cookies, stickers that said “You’ve Been Hugged” and of course, gave hugs to the students, faculty and staff.  The PTK members aimed to represent caring and sharing in an  intentional way that would lift everyone’s spirits and create a sense of community and connectedness on campus.
