Do you have unwanted stuff in your dorm room that you want to get rid of before moving out? Don’t trash it; donate it instead! The University offers two programs to get rid of your items in a responsible way. Last year these programs collected 19,874 lbs. of clothing, 2,558 lbs. of food, 1,100 lbs. of electronics, and 1,064 lbs. of other goods! The best part? By participating you are helping others in need and the planet too! Please spread the word!
