Campus Book Drive
Last year the Institute of Sustainability hosted a campus-wide book drive to help reuse and recycle old textbooks, keeping them out of landfills. Collection bins were placed around campus and over 600 books were donated. Due to this success we will keep a donation box in Santa Susana Hall all year. Books will be turned in to Beer World Books where they will either be sold to raise money for nonprofit literary organizations or donated.
