The sound of excited students filled the hallways of the Sun Devil Fitness complex, in anticipation of what the new semester would bring. School clubs and community organizations shared their stories, ideas, missions and goals with students eager to get involved and make a difference.
Donate Life Arizona hosted a table with free T-shirts and a call for generosity, asking students to register as organ, eye and tissue donors. At four colleges with seven events in August, Campus Challenge resulted in 1,317 new registrations.
Campus Challenge is an annual registration challenge that involves sharing the message of donation and registering college students. For some out-of-state students, this is an opportunity to register in Arizona and learn more about the lifesaving gift of donation.
Arizona State University, Grand Canyon University, Northern Arizona University and University of Arizona participated in this year’s challenge. We appreciate the cooperation of local universities in making these events a success.
