Welcome to OSU's sustainability website! OSU is committed to social and economic justice, and to reducing waste. Last year, OSU students launched Grads Give Back to reclaim and reuse graduation gowns, providing them this year to students in need. And now we scale it up! Gowns can be donated at staffed stations outside Reser Stadium right after Commencement or at the main entrance to the Valley Library, after Commencement through the following Monday (June 15-17).
OSU will once again be working on campus and in the Corvallis community to collect reusable goods from students during end-of-year move out and donating them to local non-profits.
