What the Improving Our World Blog is About

Current students from WSU share their stories about how they improve the world around them in both small and large ways. This could be fundraising, volunteering, academic classes or non-profit work on campus, in Winona or other communities.   

The overall focus should be examples of living mission and making a difference that impacts communities.
