Students offer 'free hugs' on Fountain Square

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Need some love? Head to Fountain Square.

Nearly 40 students from Xavier University gathered on the square Friday afternoon offering free hugs.

"Today, we're bringing down students from Xavier University to hand out free hugs to anyone who's willing to accept one," said Stephanie Renny, a Xavier student a hugger.

This week is ‘Golden Rule Week' at Xavier University. Renny says students were recruited on campus throughout the week to spread the love.

"It really highlights how the Golden Rule is present in so many cultures. Today is really our final day to share love with anyone who's willing to accept it."
