Purpose
Welcome to the Matador Exchange, a marketplace exclusively for CSUN students to buy, sell, or trade items with other CSUN students. The Matador Exchange is a market for items from furniture, electronics, and sports equipment to textbooks and school supplies.

Background
The Environmental Affairs Committee of Associated Students envisioned an online marketplace where CSUN students could buy, sell, or trade their unneeded items. Based on sites like “Freecycle” and “Craigslist,” the Matador Exchange seeks to encourage students to reduce the waste of unneeded items that may be of use to other students.

Sponsors
The concept of the Matador Exchange was presented to the California State Student Association and was awarded the annual Greenovation grant to establish the website. That grant, in addition to support from Associated Students and its talented web-design students, led to the creation of the Matador Exchange.
