DONATIONS ITEMS TO REROOM!

ReRoom Donations: Starting May 12, ReRoom will be collecting reusable items to re-circulate back into the Pitzer community at the beginning of the next academic year.  The program is designed to keep resources in our community (remember embodied energy), so incoming students do not need to go out and purchase new items every year.  There will be a Fall Sale of all items, and all money collected is used to support student sustainability projects.  As you pack your room, and put the items to the side that you do not want to haul back home with you, please bring them down to the service road to donate to ReRoom.  There will be donation bins and ReRoom staff there to collect your items.  ReRoom staff will be available from May 12-15 from 3:00 - 7:00 PM, and May 15 – 18 from 9:00 AM – 10:00 PM.

If you have any questions, please contact ReRoom staff managers Amanda Chang (achang@students.pitzer.edu) or Adin Bonapart (adbonapa@students.pitzer.edu), or email sustainability@pitzer.edu

Please do not pile up donations in your residence hall lobby. 

MICROFRIDGE PICK UP

Microfridges can be returned to Collegiate Concepts on Thursday, May 8th from 10:00am – 1:00pm in front of the Gold Student Center.  To avoid additional cleaning charges of $25 your Microfridge unit must be:

  • Fully defrosted. Please unplug the night before. (Do not use any sharp objects to defrost your unit.)
  • Completely clean and dry. (This includes seals and inside/outside surfaces of the microwave, freezer and refrigerator.)

If you feel you have been unfairly charged for the residence hall fees applied to your account, you may appeal the charges in writing or email to your residence director. Appeals must be received no later than Monday, July 1, 2013.  Any appeal received after the Monday, July 1st deadline will not be considered.  Students who did not check out with a RA before leaving or opted to do the express check out will not be allowed to appeal room damages or fines.
