During Fall of 2013, the Oyster Shell food box program was converted from a token-based system to a computer-based system. All students now have the option of taking out up to two green “to-go” boxes at once, which are tracked using the student’s one card. Each student need only return his or her used Oyster Shell box to either the Pub, the Grab-n-Go or the Great Room to receive a cleaned Oyster Shell box at their next meal. This has cut down dramatically on the amount of styrofoam waste that is produced by SMCM, and students are happy to see the campus looking cleaner!
