About OSU Repair Fairs
Repair Fairs are an event series sponsored by the student group Waste Watchers, a joint group of Campus Recycling and the Student Sustainability Initiative.
In the 2016-17 academic year, fairs will be hosted once per term (November, February and May). Details vary each time, so stay tuned to this page for information about upcoming fairs.
