You can now find us on the second floor of Varsi Hall, in Mission Gardens. We are excited for this academic year and have many events planned to promote a culture of sustainability around campus! Exciting initiatives include the new Compost Pail project (and recent giveaway event), annual Campus Sustainability Day (10/24), Women’s Volleyball Green Game (10/25), and our new upper-classmen focused Sustainable Tips: After-College Knowledge (STACK) programs. We are also already gearing up for our annual Eco-Fashion and Art Show, too!

We are also pleased to welcome Cara K. Uy as our new Sustainability Coordinator. Cara graduated from SCU in 2011, majoring in communications & environmental studies.
