The WKU campus will unite with the Bowling Green community to increase student engagement through Project Affect on Sept. 25.
A variety of student and community organizations will gather on WKU’s Grise Hall lawn from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and set up booths to present information on service opportunities.
The engagement fair includes hands-on activities reflective of different causes. The fair helps students become involved in the community and the WKU campus through service-learning, community based-research and volunteerism.
Last year, more than 20 community and campus organizations participated in the event. The ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships and WKU Student Activities’ Leadership & Volunteerism are the coordinators of the engagement fair and hope for an even bigger turn out this year.
“Project Affect is a great way for The Center for Courageous Kids to reach out to the WKU community,” said Anna Kobbeman, volunteer recruiter for The Center for Courageous Kids. “I am looking forward to meeting enthusiastic students who have a heart for volunteering and making a positive impact in our community.”
In case of rain, Project Affect will be held Sept. 26. Volunteers and organizations are still able to apply for Project Affect until Sept. 16. To apply, contact Aurelia Spaulding at (270) 782-0082 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
