Moving out? Do you have unwanted stuff in your dorm room that you want to get rid of? Don’t trash it; donate it instead! The University offers two programs to get rid of your items in a responsible way. Last year we collected 18,500 lbs. of clothing, 3,000 lbs. of food, 2,000 lbs. of electronics, and 1,000 lbs. of other goods! The best part? By participating you are helping others in need and the planet too! Please spread the word!
