Provides free textbooks for eligible active duty, National Guard, Reserve, and veterans attending WKU. Many of our service members, especially older veterans, don't have adequate education benefits to help pay for school and scholarship money is hard to come by. Programs such as this are crucial to their success.

This auction will have items of interest to everyone!   Items such as celebrity signed memorabilia, store and restaurant gift cards, vacation packages, tickets to concerts, sporting events, amusement parks and other attractions, hand-crafted items, themed gift baskets, and much more will be available.
