Green Move-Out, a major university initiative, makes the residence hall move-out process more environmentally- and community-friendly through a multifaceted donation drive. During move-out, students drop items such as bedding and linens, non-perishable food items, clothing, and books in boxes in residence halls labeled with a Green Move-Out sticker. These items are then bagged and donated to local charity partners.
This initiative is only made possible through the support of an unprecedented partnership of students, staff, and faculty volunteers, and sponsors.
Green Move-Out occurs every May. Questions regarding Green Move-Out can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
