Monday, Nov. 12 to Friday, Nov. 16, is Clayton State University’s Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week,
sponsored by the Department of Campus Life.
Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is used to raise awareness and educate the campus community and the public, and to allow students, faculty, staff and the public to engage in educational programming and meaningful dialogue that focuses on the complex issue of poverty and its effects on those who experience same.
This week culminates in the annual Sleep-Out for the Homeless and Hunger Banquet events, starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16, and continuing through 6 a.m., on Saturday, Nov. 17. The Sleep-Out for the Homeless will take place on the Student Activity Center (SAC) Green.
Students will participate in a sleep out on the SAC Green that will give them a small glimpse of what it is like to be without the comfort of a home for a night. Students will be engaged in awareness initiatives including an OxFam Hunger Banquet and documentaries discussions focusing on homelessness in the young adult population. Note: this event normally includes both Clayton County high school students as well as Clayton State students.
