CKWFU is so excited to be in our new space in Kitchin Residence Hall! All shifts gather and depart from this new location. For more information on shifts and to learn what to expect as a volunteer, just click on the volunteer information tab below. You can now view and register for all of our service opportunities at http://vhub.at/ckwfu!
We hope that you’ll join us for volunteering, movies, lectures, and general hanging out now that our new space is open and operational. Both the lounge and the kitchen are reservable for service learning courses, student organization/group meetings and programs, and hanging out. The new lounge is open from 2-7pm M-Thurs. and 2-5pm Fridays and is staffed by one of our Executive Board members. Check out the opportunities coming up this month and contact Nikki Kus, programming chair at if you would like to have an event or co-sponsor with us in our space.
The most exciting event we have coming up is the Vandana Shiva Book Club co-sponsored by the WFU Women’s Center. The book club is an opportunity for folks in our community to prepare for Dr. Shiva’s visit as the keynote speech for the Make Every Bite Count Fall Speaker Series hosted by the Office of Sustainability. Participation is free and open here. Participants who register for one of the 3 bookclub discussion groups will receive a free copy of Dr. Shiva’s classic “Staying Alive: Women, Ecology, and Development” and will be invited to an intimate tea with Dr. Shiva during her visit on November 5th in the Campus Kitchen Lounge. Dr. Shiva’s keynote is on November 4th. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis.
