February 9th-11th ASPCC members at the Rock Creek campus hosted an eCycle event. What is an eCycle event? An eCycling event is where you take your old/unused electronics such as computers, cell phones, cameras, microwaves, etc to the event to be recycled! This helps keep electronics out of the waste stream and allows valuable parts to be reused/refurbished.

Rock Creeks eCycle event was full of activities, fun and chocolate! I attended the event February 11th, there was a card making station to make that special someone a handmade gift for valentines day. There was a selfie photo booth as well, where you were able to take a selfie with a fun valentines day background and have the chance to win a $50 giftcard to the bookstore. There was music, delicious chocolate and chips as well!

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
