What a great and productive week. Events of every shape and size were both exciting and informative. Tabling distributed a huge variety of information. If you would like to follow up about anything you’ve learned or want more information, please contact me.
The recycling competition has been postponed due to some miscommunication with custodial, but the prize for the winning dorm is still a pizza party with Donatos. There has been a great effort in increase awareness of recycling, thanks to the ‘memes’ from the Political Rhetoric communications class and their distribution of Gus Fuguitt’s new, easy to read recycling sign.
The new display case over the bulletin boards in front of Lowry is for our new WHT bus schedule and the bike club’s garage hours. Matt Policastro based his design of the bus schedule on the New York Metro’s style. It looks really great, check it out. We’ll be working on getting it posted online as well. The WHT bus is free with any COW card.
The new bike club garage is still looking for a few more managers before it can set daily hours of operation, so if you are interested please contact Anna Mudd.
This past Saturday was the Vegan Co-Op and the final event of Reduce Reuse Recycle week. Congratulations to the winners of the found-object art competition:

And in first place: Colin Bauman won $75 to Amazon.com for his trinket robot.
