Move Out Collection Drive & Great South Side Sale 2018

Every year, at the end of the spring semester, thousands of American college students move out of dormitories and apartments in their college community. Every year many of these same students find that there are items they cannot or do not want to take with them. The Lehigh Valley experiences this spring ritual every year at each of the seven colleges in the area.

During the Lehigh Move Out Collection Drive, students may drop off these unwanted items in designated areas in residential halls and Greek houses as well as at Lamberton Hall.  Items are sold at the Great South Side Sale in early June to benefit children and youth programs in South Bethlehem.
