The Campus Y at Washington University in St. Louis is celebrating its 100th year on campus in 2011 and kicking off its “Strong Community Campaign” at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at Whittemore House. The celebration is open to the public.

Organizers hope to raise $70,500 through the campaign, which runs until the end of February.

At the kickoff event, two students will speak about their experiences with the Campus Y: student director Anthonia Ojo, a senior biology/psychology major in Arts & Sciences, and volunteer Chance Grance, a MBA/MSW student.

Campus Y Executive Director Tiffany Barke and Jill Carnaghi, associate vice chancellor for students & dean of campus life, also will speak.
