Sneaker recycling drop box


Student Life Energy Management and Sustainability and Ohio State Athletics are working with Nike to recycle sneakers. Between now and Wednesday, April 25, you can drop off any pair of worn-out sneakers at orange drop boxes located in Blackburn House, Morrill Tower, Smith-Steeb Hall, Residence on Tenth, Younkin Success Center and the RPAC. Worn-out sneakers and unused manufacturing scrap are ground up and transformed into a material that can be used in high-performance sports surfaces. More information is online.

Buckeye Alert desktop notification. "This is a test of the Buckeye Alert system."


When a Buckeye Alert is issued for the Columbus campus, a pop-up message will appear on your Student Life issued computer (including desktops and laptops.) This newly adopted technology has already been downloaded, so you do not need to take action to receive these important alerts. The message will appear on your screen for five minutes or until you click “acknowledge.” You can sign up for Buckeye Alert texts and Public Safety notice emails online
