The machine's installment was the result of a collaborative effort between UD's Sustainability Fund Working Group, the University Student Centers, Facilities Maintenance and Operations Plumbing Services and Cope-Wardell-Ammon Associates Inc.

Campus Stories

PT STAR

The physical therapy classrooms on the University of Delaware's STAR Campus are adding new dimensions to education for both teachers and learners.

Ice cream finalists

The five finalists have been chosen for the Alumni Weekend's Dela-bration Ice Cream Flavor contest, and members of the campus community get to decide which flavor is the cream of the crop by voting online.

In celebration of the station’s success, the University Student Centers offered a prize to the patron who filled the 100,000th bottle. Freshman Justin Brooks submitted a photo of him doing that just before 11 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11, and won a prize package that included a Barnes and Noble Nook HD, two reusable shopping bags and a stainless steel water bottle,among additional items.

Brooks said he loves the refill station and looks forward to seeing campus sustainability efforts continue.

The University Student Centers hopes to soon install an additional station at Trabant University Center in support of reusable water bottle use.
