UNIVERSITY FOR SENIORS OFFERS INTERGENERATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
University for Seniors (US) offers UMD faculty an opportunity to incorporate
intergenerational interactions into their curriculum. Sharing Across GenErations
(SAGE) will coordinate individual interviews or group presentations between
US members and UMD students. Over the past seven years US members have
cooperated with over fifteen different departments.

Mary Lee Lalich, Director University for Seniors at 726-6347 or email@example.com.
RECYCLED WHITE PAPER PAYS
UMD is committed to helping the environment through recycling and now
its a paying operation. UMD is being paid for collecting white paper
to be used in paper making and other industries. By contrast, UMD is charged
to haul other paper products to the recycling facility and its charged
even more to haul trash to the landfill. Do your part, separate and use
the white paper recycling bins.
Why does UMD recycle? Each year, the United States uses 85.5 million tons
of paper, of which we recycle 22%, or 19 million tons. Of the remaining
paper, we could recycle up to 70% or 46 million tons. And those 46 million
tons could save 782 million trees. For information about recycling at
UMD contact at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 726-8144.
A food drive will be held on campus December 2 - 18. Drop off your
