Other Programs

Move Out Week

The office of resource management organizes the collection of unopened food when students leave after the spring semesters. Bins are located in residential communities and students can donate unopened food items they don't plan to take home. Each year, tons of food is collected and donated to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW).


Colleges and universities across the country compete to see who can recycle and reduce the most waste over a twelve week period. Learn more about Recyclemania here.
