    Homelessness Awareness Week

     HAW is a week-long series of events dedicated to increasing awareness of homelessness on college campuses as well as reducing stigma to students facing homelessness. Each year, students who participate are surprised to find out that their fellow students struggle with homelessness, and often are surprised by the numbers of students that are affected at KSU.  Some events are donation drives or fundraisers, and some are simulations or informational sessions targeted at awareness and stigma reduction.  The week culminates with the Cobb County Candlelight Vigil honoring homeless community members who passed away in the last year, and a sleep-out for students to experience first-hand what it is like to be a homeless college student.
