University of New Hampshire

Alexander M. Freid
Alex is a political science and philosophy major at the University of New Hampshire and is involved in a number of movements both on and off campus. At UNH, he founded and organized UNH Trash 2 Treasure (T2T), which became the first student-led, self-sustaining program of its kind in the country. T2T collects, stores, and re-sells usable furniture, electronics, and other items that are discarded by students at the end of the spring semester. In the next few years, Alex plans on incorporating T2T as a national non-profit organization, and using the funds generated from the sales to begin spreading the program to other schools nation-wide.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
