Sunglasses aren’t just a fashion accessory, they are protection for your eyes. According to the National Eye Institute, wearing glasses that block out 99 to 100% of both UVA and UVB radiation can keep your vision sharp and eyes healthier. All EdR communities shared the importance of wearing sunglasses on social media and some even gave them away! The Hub and Campus Village helped students snag a pair of sunnies and raise awareness on National Sunglasses Day.

It’s not uncommon for EdR communities to provide refreshments to their residents and guests, but Lokal Apartments in Fort Collins, CO just stepped up their refreshment game.
