A significant amount of recyclables
was collected by 88 student volunteers at Beaver Stadium after Saturday's
football game against Louisiana Tech. The students were joined by several
recycling mascots, above, for the kickoff of a "Rush to Recycling" campaign.
Through the campaign, the University has been challenged to increase the
amount of recycled material collected at the games and on campus. Below,

the stands offering encouragement to the volunteers as they collected
the recyclables, and then posed with the volunteers and the bags of recyclables
