The Health Education and Wellness Office of Baylor University will host AIDS Awareness Week Nov. 29-Dec. 3. Wednesday, Dec. 1, is World AIDS Day.

Campus events to promote awareness will include an AIDS compassion tree in the McLane Student Life Center from 1 to 5 p.m. during the week. Students can become part of Brian's House, a non-profit organization helping children with HIV. Donation boxes will be set up in both the Bill Daniel and McLane student centers.

Andrea King, student outreach coordinator, said reminders about the severity of AIDS always is important, no matter how much students already know about the disease.

"Our office is here to educate people about making responsible choices," King said. "AIDS is still affecting many people's lives and since there still is no known cure, it is imperative that students get the facts."
