Matador Exchange is an online marketplace exclusively for CSUN students to buy, sell, or trade items with other CSUN students. The Matador Exchange is a market for items from furniture, electronics, and sports equipment to textbooks and school supplies. Based on sites like “Freecycle” and “Craigslist,” the Matador Exchange seeks to encourage students to reduce the waste of unneeded items that may be of use to other students.

Trash Talkers
March 7th - 9th

Trash Talkers is an interactive educational program geared toward educating students on how to properly dispose of their waste on campus. We created a game that challenges students to properly dispose of their items by presenting them with materials they would encounter when they visit different dining locations on campus. We ask them what bin they believe it belongs in and educate students as to why certain items go in a bin. We also provide students with tips and tricks on how to identify which bin the items go in.
