Residence Life will host a campus-wide garage sale Friday, May 7, from 5-8 p.m. All MSU community members are invited to peruse the swap tables within the individual buildings to take any/all items that have been donated by students during move-out. Lumber, furniture and other large items are available outside the residence halls for pick-up May 3 through May 8. All items on the swap tables and outside areas are free during the times and days listed.

After evaluation of the campus-wide garage sale efforts, the Residence Life Department and it's students determined that the issue of sustainability and reduced landfill contributions would be best managed by the individual residence hall students and staff. Rather than offering discarded items from the Residence Halls to a community audience, the individual residence halls have been working to encourage students to exchange treasures with one another instead of trashing items.
