Students's Garage Sale

students' garage

tHE IDEA:

Students finishing University Square should be able to sell their stuff (kitchen dishes, cups, etc. blankets, pillows, duvet, etc.... ) during the welcome week to new students or if they are leaving before, the SU should help them sell them.
When final students in their last year leave they have lots of belongings they will not be taking back home and end up donating what they can even throwing some in the trash, there is no chance to sell to freshmen since they arrive after we leave.
As a freshman I found myself buying this kind of stuff which I would not mind buying second handed from a former student and save some money. 
So the main idea would be for us students leaving for good to be able to sell this stuff to freshmen leaving this stuff the Students Union and to have a garage sale so freshmen can buy this stuff.

2:46pm on 25 Aug 17 Unless the university, the SU commit to making some adjustments, the timing of leavingof old and and commencement of new students will pose a difficulty. Maybe be a good idea to sell to continuing students still around, or engage in some exchange of items with other students.
