Does the institution have a program to reduce residence hall move-in waste?:

A brief description of the program:

Facilities and Services works hand in hand with the Housing Department staff. We have been doing this for the last three years. In 2010 we collected 8 tons of cardboard. We are working on adding the collection of materials for reuse to this program.

Under the heading "What to Bring":
We provide a suggested packing list of what (and what not) to bring to NMSU.
Planning to drive down? Consider eliminating traditional luggage; it takes up a lot of room in the car and there is no place to store it in the residence halls. Instead, use large garbage bags, laundry bags and pillow cases.
