The end of the semester is in sight... which means you'll be moving out sooner than you know. Help us reduce the amount of waste that heads to the landfill from Ithaca College!
Once again, Take It Or Leave It (TIOLI) bins will be in the lounges in the dorms during all of finals week for you to donate whatever you don't want that's in usable condition rather than throwing it in the dumpster before you move out. You can also take anything you like from the bins!
Here is a sampling of stuff to drop in the bins to be reused:

Assistant Professor of Journalism Anthony Adornato published a paper, Forces at the Gate: Social Media’s Influence on Editorial and Production Decisions in Local TV Newsrooms, in the Electronic News journal. The study reveals that the reliance on social media content has increased the chances that newsrooms will spread misinformation. A third of respondents indicated their stations have reported information from social media that was later found to be false or inaccurate. Despite this, policy has not caught up with practice. One of the more striking findings of this study is, of those newsrooms that have social media policies, nearly 40% said the policy does not include procedures for verifying social media content before it is included in a newscast. Read the study here.
