As over 7,400 students prepare to move out of the University Residence Halls, the UW-Madison Division of University Housing is asking for volunteers to help residents and their families say goodbye sustainably to items they no longer need.
Heather Brevard had no idea where she would live when she was accepted into the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2014. By May 1, she still needed an answer. “I was tooling around on the University Housing website, and I noticed ‘Spanish Language House’,” Brevard says. “I thought about how I had quite a few years of learning Spanish in grade school, and I always wanted to learn Spanish to proficiency. That’s as good of a place as any.”
