Master the art of studying with the WAM Collective.

Welcome back to campus! WAM Collective will host its first study night of the year on Wednesday, September 14 from 5 – 8 p.m.! As always, the first 100 students to arrive will get to sip on a FREE Misfit Coffee. We will also introduce a pilot cup return program called UCup (more on that below!). Take a break from staring at the complicated syllabus for that class you regret signing up for and make a cute button or two with our button-making station! Free for students. Complimentary good vibes.

About UCup

The UCup cup deposit program was developed as a solution to the overflowing garbage bins with precariously balanced coffee cups seen around campus. Intended to reduce and eliminate the need for single-use coffee cups, the program incorporates lessons from established concepts operating around the world in a way that fits the UMN campus. Once incorporated, the program becomes a system of cup use intended to ensure sustainable options are convenient and accessible. The program was initially designed in response to an assignment prompt for a Grand Challenge Course. Following the course, UCup creator Lauren Anderson was determined to make the project a reality so she entered the Acara Challenge sustainability competition and won funding to implement a pilot. While the pilot was postponed due to the pandemic, we are now ready and excited to test the concept during the September 2022 WAM Study Night.

This event is Student Services Fee funded.
