Sparta Center

The Sparta Center is a service offered through the Office of Student Activities & Leadership for student organizations to request disposable and non-disposable event supplies to make sure their events go off without a hitch! Many of the Sparta Center products are certified compostable and we strive to be as sustainable as possible.

  • The Undergraduate Student Government
  • The Undergraduate Diversity Collaborative
  • IFC/Panhel
  • The Graduate Student Council
