Bluffton Compliments is a student run Facebook page where students can anonymously post compliments towards other students. The Bluffton Compliments page was created in April of 2013 by a Bluffton University student, Kerry Bush.
Kerry said she originally saw a similar type of page done by Goshen College and felt that it would be a good thing to have here on campus. Kerry has set up the page in a way that every compliment is completely anonymous, including to her.
On the Bluffton Compliments Facebook page, there is a link to a Google docs form where anyone can write a nice compliment and submit it. The administrator, Kerry, looks through them to make sure that they are appropriate and posts them on the page in the form of a status. She admits that some of the compliments come from her but that the majority of the compliments are posted by students throughout campus.
Hopefully with the support of other students, Bluffton Compliments will be a page that is continuously updated with encouraging posts. Kerry will be graduating this May and is looking for somebody to take over her role as administrator. She hopes to keep the page alive and thriving so it can continue to brighten peoples’ day.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the Bluffton Compliments page on Facebook and like it. Also make sure to suggest the page to all your friends, especially underclassmen who may not know about it. If you see a post about someone you know, tag them. It’s nice to see the great things that our peers have to say about each other.
