Hunt Food Shelf gets 100-pound donation

We were honored this month by the employee contributions of NBT Bank with a food donation of 100 pounds to support the Food Shelf at Hunt College Union. We are always looking for ways to improve the experience of the students we serve. As such, we need to continue to collect donations for the Food Shelf in the Hunt College Union to address food insecurity among our students and the campus community.

The Food Shelf, supported by the Office of Student Life and Leadership/Hunt College Union, Center for Social Responsibility and Community, Student Association, Office of Equity and Inclusion, and the Office of Sustainability, is located on your left as you enter the lower level entrance to Hunt Union (near the pond).

To make it easier for staff across campus to donate non-perishable food, we have established various drop off points. Below you will find a variety of campus locations and helpful contacts to collect your food donations. Ongoing donations will be moved to the Hunt Union to be stored and regularly distributed to the shelf.

Annual Records Destruction Day sees great success

This year’s annual shred day was a great success, and we were able to shred 4,300 lbs. of records in accordance with the Records Retention Guidelines we follow. That is 1,400 lbs. more than 2017. Nearly 30 departments across campus took part in the Annual Shred Day, and it went very smoothly.
