Don’t Forget: Move In/ MoveOut Sale
Have some things in your dorm that you just don’t want to take with you when you move out?
Well you are in luck! There are bins in all of the residence halls on campus for items that you don’t want anymore.
We will save these items for a move in/ move out sale happening in the fall.
Interesting article about why it is better to run some larger appliances at night.
