End of Spring Semester Collections

Beginning with the Spring 2009 Semester, the Campus Sustainability Advisory Committee (CSAC) with support from the Housing and Residential Life Office sponsored the collection of clothing, shoes, and food left in the residence areas by students at the end of the academic year.  Students moving back home for the summer usually have many items they don't want to take with them so  CSAC decided to collect these items for donation instead of having them disposed of in the garbage.

To date, the following amounts have been collected:

During Closing Week of 2009, 3,500 pounds of clothing and shoes and 6,000 pounds of food were collected.

During Closing Week of 2010, 1,380 pounds of clothing and shoes and 6,500 pounds of food were collected.

During Closing Week of 2011, 2,228 pounds of clothing and shoes were collected.

During Closing Week of 2012, 3,575 pounds of clothing and shoes were collected.

During Closing Week of 2015, 1,866 pounds of clothing and shoes and 875 pounds of food were collected.
