Students in residence can furnish their digs with dishes, furniture and other reusables from The Attic, a new thrift shop in McTaggart Cowan Hall.

Josina Vink, a fourth-year business student and residence programming area coordinator, dreamed up the shop as a way to recycle items residents often throw away.

The Attic operates on donations and is open every second Friday from 1–5 p.m. and on selected days at the start and end of semesters. All proceeds support Inspiration Projects, a club that encourages community involvement to address humanitarian needs locally and globally. Since opening, The Attic has nearly emptied out as more than 200 students have snapped up its offerings.
