Are you an off-campus student moving out of your apartment? And do you have things that you no longer want? You can donate, recycle, and/or dispose of many of these items at our Spring Move-Out event!

Students must register before the event at:

Items you can bring:

Furniture (couches, beds, futons, desks)
Appliances (mini fridges, microwaves, toasters, lamps)
Electronics (TVs, computers)
Non-Perishable Food 

The Stout Student Association and the City of Menomonie are paying for the cost to dispose of and recycle your items. You must register for this program before arriving!

When bringing items to Parking Lot 29, you must:

1. Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth

2. Observe social distancing of 6 feet or more between yourself and any other people who aren't in your household.

3. Bring a helper -- Because this is a socially distanced event, we will not be able to help students remove items from their vehicles and place them into reuse trucks or disposal dumpsters, so please bring someone to help you.

4. Arrive with your own items -- If you have a family member, friend, or someone else helping you transport your items, you will need to accompany them. You can either arrive in the same vehicle or a different vehicle (for social distancing purposes). If you arrive in a different vehicle, you will need to pull in first with your student ID and have the vehicle with your items pull in behind you.

5. Have your valid student ID -- You will be asked to show your student ID in a socially distant manner when you arrive.
Enter Parking Lot 29 from its north entrance on 13th Avenue East -- From there, you will be directed where to go by those staffing the event.

Please note: The budget for this event is limited, so it is first-come, first-served. Students are allowed one trip per valid student ID. If the budget is expended, you will have to find an alternative way to recycle and dispose of your items. If you have any questions, please email us at

  1. Hope Gospel Mission - Donate usable clothing, housewares, non-perishable food, electronics in Menomonie or Eau Claire (Eau Claire will also take furniture)

Pollinator Seeding at CRCPRA

Tuesday, May 4
5:00pm - 7:00pm
Private Location (RSVP to display)
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

Tuesday, May 4th We will be having one last work-day this semester at CRCPRA to sow seeds for the pollinator planting we having been preparing for. The work shouldn't take too long so there should be plenty of time to hike around or to stop over at nearby Dobbs Landing to see the results of the recent prescribed burn in the areas where the NAC prepped fire breaks this fall.

Meet at the entrance kiosk at 5pm on Tuesday, wear sturdy shoes but no other protective gear will be necessary. We'll be spreading the seeds using sawdust to add extra volume for better dispersal so a mask might be a good idea to keep excess dust out of your nose and mouth.

Mental Health Tip

Tips for Finals Week

Finals week is here!!! Here are ways you can practice self-care and maintain good mental health among all the stress.
  1. Make To-Do Lists: This can help you organize your thoughts and tasks as you move ahead. You’ll also be able to see what you’ve all accomplished!
  1. Lay off the Caffeine: Too much caffeine increases levels of anxiety and also contributes to insomnia. Limit yourself to around 1 or 2 cups a day.
  1. Sleep: It’s important to get at least 7 - 9 hours of sleep each night so your brain can sort all the information you spent all day learning.
  1. Eat Healthy: Don’t neglect healthy habits during this time because you’re too busy. Nutrition is important to keep yourself going. Also drink LOTS of water!
  1. Switch Up Your Space: Changing up your environment can help you recall things better and help with productivity and learning.
  1. Take Breaks: It’s okay to give yourself a break! Try studying for around 50 minutes and then take a 10-15 minute break.
