During this month’s Earth Day celebrations, students will explore issues of environmental justice, campus sustainability, and energy alternatives through interactive activities, volunteer service, and discussions.

As part of the new Connected Communities Program, the College is also launching its Greening Lafayette initiative this month. Through ECOreps (student environmental leaders), the initiative hopes to promote knowledge of environmental science and resources on campus and in the wider world, as well as connecting our campus with local, national, and global environmental efforts.
