A little kindness can go a long way.

The group of UMD, UWS and College of St. Scholastica students who returned from a study abroad trip to Germany were so touched by the welcome and ease they found at "welcome cafes," they're bringing the idea to the Twin Ports.

In a series of pop-up events around the community, they hope to provide a space for college kids who've just arrived, people who've just relocated to the area or just anyone who's feeling a little disconnected.

You can find more information about the Twin Ports Welcome Cafe project on Facebook, and if you want additional information, you can email Stephanie Randby here.
