In the fall of 2017, the Hunt Union established a food shelf and is encouraging community members to drop off non-perishable items to the designated shelf in the lower level of Hunt College Union. We continue to improve our effort to address food insecurity via collection, storage, and distribution.

Electronic Waste Collection Station- started in spring of 2014 Hunt College Union partnered with the Office of Sustainability to develop this drop-off program to collect assorted electronic waste products (PC equipment, batteries, cords, phones, printer cartridges, etc.) to minimize the impact on the environment. It is located across from the Information Desk in Hunt Union. Since March 2014 more than 4,500 lbs. has been collected and processed sensibly.
Your Hunt Union is operated and programmed by a committed and enthusiastic staff of professionals and students in the Office of Student Life and Leadership who work with many constituents on and off campus to help foster co-curricular life at the college.
