They are trying to get more people to put more efforts towards reducing our carbon footprint in the environment. They will have info booth at Fall Fest, and they will also be having a “Green” car show on October 3rd from 11-2 in Tabitha’s Courtyard.
Books for students:
Shannon Shaughnessy came to talk about her idea to get books to more students who do not qualify for financial aid, yet cannot afford books. Shannon would like to start asking student to donate their books instead of selling them back, and also using the old editions of the books that the departments keep, and allowing for students to use them. Julian suggested using the library system in order to keep track of the books. There will also be a set process for eligibility that will have to be talked about and decided on before the program begins.
Club Trivial Bowl:
Autumn McGimsey from the department of education came to talk about the club trivial bowl. It is a trivial competition to see which club is the most globally aware. She needs to know which clubs would like to participate by October 15th. The quiz bowl will be taking place around the 19th of November.
