During Earth Week the Computer Club partners with Green Monster to host a free e-cycling collection event. Anyone with old or unused electronics is invited to bring them to campus for easy, safe, environmentally sensitive disposal. Items may also be dropped for e-cycling at the Technology Center prior the event.
Every year, the Computer Club accepts essays from students who express the need for their own laptop. A panel of judges, featuring students, faculty, and staff, read the essays and recommendations the writers gather from professors. The entries are ranked using a rubric that addresses different criteria, including the persuasiveness, and the amount of need expressed. The Computer Club then purchases laptops for deserving students using donations they collect at their E-Cycling Event and from generous students, faculty, and staff who, after receiving free services from the Technology Center, opt to contribute.
