MANRRS General Body Meeting

Thursday, March 28th   5:30 - 6:30 PM  Symons Hall 0118

"MANRRS is a national society that welcomes membership of people of all racial and ethnic group participation in agricultural and related science careers. MANRRS members are encouraged to be full participants in other professional societies for their basic disciplinary and career interests. However, MANRRS attempts to provide networks to support the professional development of minorities. It is a springboard for their entry into and advancement in careers where they otherwise could be lost in the sheer number and established connections of mainstream participants. For student members, MANRRS provides role models and networking opportunities. MANRRS also offers students opportunities to enhance leadership and organizational and public speaking skills, and to experience professional critique of scholarly worked in a “user-friendly” environment."

Call for Volunteers - Residence Hall Waste Audits

Call for Volunteers - Residence Hall Waste Audits
Facilities Management, Residential Facilities, and Dining Services are collaborating to conduct a series of waste audits of campus residence halls. At a University of our size, there is an enormous amount of waste generated.

We are holding a series of waste audits throughout the Spring semester to gather data for the evaluation and improvement of our waste program. Audits will be held on select Fridays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. outside of Maryland stadium. The sign up link can be found below.
To support these audits, we are looking for student volunteers. Volunteers will be provided with the knowledge and the necessary materials to correctly identify, sort, and weigh waste items. Volunteers will also be given a swag bag for sustainable living.
