Volunteer your time
Our doors are always open to you! We're always looking for eager alumni and other professionals to speak to current students. You're welcome to visit the Herald newsroom during production on Tuesday afternoons. Talisman staffers also welcome alums and others back to visit at the Adams-Whitaker Student Publications Center. You can work with students, give advice or just share fond stories of when you were on staff. Or we'd love to have you attend or speak at one of our workshops or training sessions.

Our alumni from WKU Student Publications are a generous lot. Alumni, the College Heights Herald and the Talisman combined for a successful campaign to raise more than $1 million to build the Adams-Whitaker Student Publications Center. The 6,500-square-foot center opened in January 2008, a $1.7 million project that was a joint venture with WKU. We have a rich tradition of alumni support, and your financial help is always welcome and helps keep us going! The generosity of alumni and friends allows us to offer fellowships, fund scholarships and provide many other opportunities to students.
Donations can be made online through WKU's Make a Gift website. Using the search box on the site, search for "Student Publications" and select either the Student Publications Legacy Fund or the Student Publications Fellowship Fund. You can also search for a particular scholarship fund by name. Donations given to specific funds are designated for Student Publications and cannot be taken by the university for other uses.
If you're interested in other forms of giving, please contact Chuck Clark.
