UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Everything 50 cents, at UNCG’s annual rummage sale. This year, on a Tuesday

The sale, in its eighteenth year, will be held at the Cone Ballroom as always. However, this year the sale will be on Tuesday, July 2, 2-6 p.m., instead of a Saturday as it has been in years past.

This  allows more opportunity for employees to come to the sale at the end of the work day.

At the end of each spring semester, student castoffs, ranging from clothes to appliances, are collected and sold for fifty cents each. Items left after the sale will be donated to the Salvation Army.

Come by during the sale open hours to search through the offerings and find some fifty-cent gems.

UNCG’s Guarantee Scholars are volunteering the labor, from the sorting process through handling all of the collected donations. This is no small feat since there are close to 8 tons of items per year and this year seems to be in that range again. Tyshea Lewis, Associate Director of the Guarantee Scholars Program,  has been instrumental with this partnership with UNCG Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling to make Cram and Scram possible.
