C2D2 is embarking on a summer-long service opportunity to collect unused toiletries from hotels, and now they've extended the challenge to all of OUE. If you aren't planning on traveling, but would still like to get involved, you can purchase travel-sized toiletries and drop them off in C2D2's break room, located in the Bill Moore Student Success Center..
