Why LexEngaged?

Making the transition from high school to college can be difficult. When you join a large university, it helps to be a part of a community where  you can build connections with neighbors who become close friends. LexEngaged takes this to the next level by exploring together all that Lexington has to offer, our responsibilities to build community beyond the boundaries of campus, and making you a better neighbor with our fellow Lexingtonians. It will help you become an active community  participant in discussions on issues of social justice and civic engagement.
