Shared Interest Communities

WKU Shared Interest Communities are designed to bring students together who have common academic, social and extracurricular interests. Students can create groups that are purely social or that perform community service projects. Student Interest Communities are completely student driven and are monetarily supported by WKU Housing & Residence Life.page break
