The Center for Community Engagement at Indiana State hosted the volunteer fair Wednesday.
Over 30 local non-profits were on campus to meet students and let them know about volunteer and service-learning opportunities.
This is the 9th year for the event and organizers say both sides can benefit.
"A majority of our students are not from the Wabash Valley so it's kind of scary at first when you move into a new campus, especially if you're a first year student or even if you're a returning student and you're not familiar with the surrounding area. It's a great way for our students to see what we provide in outreach capacity in the Wabash Valley and what our needs are in our community as well," said Heather Dalton Miklozeck, assistant director of student activities and organizations for Center of Community Engagement at ISU.
Organizers were expecting at least 200 students to stop by the volunteer fair.
