Students getting information at Project Affect


September 2014

WKU Centennial Mall

The WKU ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships and the WKU Student Activities' Leadership & Volunteerism sponsor an awareness event  called Project Affect. Project Affect is a campus and community engagement fair that offers information on how to get involved through service, as well as engages visitors in hands-on activities reflective of different causes. Countless students came out the event and 38 organizations averaged speaking to 68 students each last year. We look forward to an even greater turnout this year.
