WoKS Walks

Wednesdays, August 24-December 7
Bottom of the ramp in front of Hale Library

On Wednesdays, WoKS walks! Join us every Wednesday from August 24th- December 7th to go on a walk over the lunch hour. We have mapped out a specific route that will take us through and around campus for 2-2.5 miles. This should only take us about 40-50 minutes. We know a lot of people get stuck at their desks over the lunch hour but let’s make an effort to get moving on Wednesdays! You can take a look at the Campus Calorie Map here. For a map of our walks, please visit our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/womenofkstate We hope to see you there!
