Weekly Event Roundup with Campus Living & Residential Education
Happy Sunday! Here's what's happening on-campus, in the residence halls, and virtually this week. 
Did you know we have a student-run food pantry on campus? The Store, managed by the Store student organization and the Division for Student Affairs, provides resources and support for students living with food insecurity. The Store has dried goods, meats, fresh produce, dairy, vegan options, and more for students to make sure all students can access things they need. 
Aside from food, the Store also rents out laptops and iclickers to students per semester and provides laundry and printing cards, lightly used business attire, household items, toiletries, and menstrual hygiene products.
For more information or to sign up to either access the Store or to volunteer, visit the Store website
