Victoria Bennett - ONE Campaign at IU Southeast

Victoria Bennett, a senior at Indiana University Southeast, has been actively working to revive the ONE campaign on her campus.  ONE is a national organization that advocates against extreme poverty and preventable disease, especially in Africa.

The first ONE event at IU Southeast was held in fall 2011, and Bennett described it as a success.  The event entailed a discussion with an IU Southeast professor and expert on extreme poverty.  The group also planned a World Hunger Day dinner in March to raise awareness for the cause.

Bennett previously lived in Atlanta before starting school at IU Southeast.  She works full-time as a paralegal and returned to school after many years in the workforce.  Bennett was initially apprehensive about joining campus life as a nontraditional student.  However, she knew she wanted to get involved in the community.  She offered some advice to other students looking to get involved on campus: “Just do it.  Don’t think there’s not a place for you.”
