Residence hall move outs can generate so much unnecessary waste. What if the items that normally go to a landfill could be flipped and given to other students in need? In this episode of Roompact’s ResEdChat, we chat with two of the individuals responsible for Marshall University’s Green Move Out and Campus Thrift Store programs. Learn from their experiences about how you might be able to replicate it on your own campus.
- Sarah-Frances Lyon, Assistant Director of Academic Initiatives, Housing and Residence Life, Marshall University
