Declaring it a successful effort, officials at WKU have announced that the "A New Century of Spirit" campaign raised more than $202 million. The announcement came at the President's Circle Gala and Campaign Celebration. Kathryn Costello, WKU Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations, says a total of $202,305,534 was raised to support students, faculty, programs, and capital projects.
Friday night's gala on the WKU campus will include a celebration of the fund-raising campaign known as "A New Century of Spirit." During gala activities, the final figures for the campaign will be announced. University officials have been very pleased with progress on the campaign, particularly in light of unfavorable economic conditions that have been in effect for much of the five year project.
