Terre Haute IN, November 14,2013 – Love music? Love giveaways? 89.7 WISU will be holding an awareness campaign in the commons of Indiana State University, where they will station a table for students on December 5th and 6th from 1-4pm both days. Fun items will be up for grabs for those who participate in various activities at the WISU table. The table will be located on the south entrance next to the Mein Bowl.
