Never fear, free laundry is almost here! Over this summer, all washers and dryers on campus will be replaced with brand new, top of the line commercial machines. With the upgrade comes an academic year of free laundry for on-campus residents starting Fall 2014.
“It’s exciting because students are watching their budgets and sometimes laundry takes a back seat to other needs or wants,” said Director of Residence Life Scott Horch.
Free laundry means students can wash and dry as often as they’d like without worry of breaking the bank or stopping to think about how much money is left on their ID card.
“Student Government and Residence Life staff worked hard to make this happen, and we are very fortunate to have dedicated students and staff in each of these areas,” said Horch.
To let students know about the new machines on the way, and the free laundry that will come with them, Residence Life held a “guess the number of soap pods” contest with the winner receiving a fully stocked clothes basket. Student Kayla Boleyn won the basket of laundry goodies including an ironing board, drying rack, detergents, hangers and more.
There’s no doubt about it, fresh things are happening on campus!
