! Trash & Recycling  Slide THIS Week !

THIS WEEK we have a trash slide for Washington's Birthday. When a holiday occurs, DC DPW trash/recycling collection days “slide” to the next day for the rest of the week. This means that:

     - West Georgetown's trash collection will be on Wednesday, and trash and recycling will be collected on Saturday.
     - Burleith's and Foxhall's trash and recycling will be collected on Friday.
     - The Cloisters will be unaffected as trash and recycling are collected by a private hauling company. 

Be sure your housemates are also aware of the change and adjust your schedule this week so you do not receive a citation from the university or a ticket from the city.

To be prepared for future trash/recycling slides, check out this DPW trash slide guide.

Live Salon: Chocolate Tasting at La Cosecha
For more information and to registers, please visit their event page!

A tasting with Arcay Chocolates and a book talk at La Cosecha, a contemporary Latin American marketplace in Washington DC.
About La Cosecha (From our book 111 Places in Women's History That You Must Not Miss. "Food halls and urban markets are making a comeback in cities across the country. In DC, Union Market District is bringing our city’s historic markets back to life with a modern-day market district and dining destination created from the original Centre Market from 1871 and the Union Terminal from 1931. The most recent addition to the neighborhood is La Cosecha, which means “the harvest” in Spanish. La Cosecha is a contemporary market that celebrates Latin American culture with an emphasis on female entrepreneurs and innovators. The space merges art, heritage, culture, and food in a warm and welcoming environment that brings the diversity of Latin American culture under one roof."

Guests will participate in a chocolate tasting with Chocolatier Anabella Arcay as well as a book reading from 111 Places in Women's History That You Must Not Miss.

Orientation Reminder!

Later today, you will receive an invitation from Canvas to participate in the Hoya Living Off Campus Orientation. This is not required for graduate students, but is a great place to learn about all off campus policies and relevant information.
