Results of Sustainability Floor Survey!


Published in 2013

The Sustainability Office asked almost 200 students at the beginning of this semester their opinions on creating a sustainability-focused floor in a residence hall at BSU. We had a nice distribution of student demographics and majors. We were pleasantly surprised with the results. Nearly 60% of the students surveyed would choose to live on a floor focused on sustainability, and most students surveyed agreed that the floor would be most beneficial for incoming freshman. A wide variety of interest was shown in what the students living on the floor would focus on. We also asked students who they thought the sustainability floor should partner with and most thought that the floor should work with the Sustainability Office, Students for the Environment club, and the Environmental Studies faculty.

We are Back!


Published in 2013

Its me John Frazier, just letting everyone know how it is going here in the Sustainability Office.

Our first official week in the new office is over, and I am calling it a success. Our grand opening was great fun with food, live music, prizes, and people My favorite part was definitely the drum circle, and apparently we were pretty good since we received invitations to play at other events around campus. Score! The stream of students has been steady whether they have been coming in for information on the sustainability office and to check out the FreeStore, or get their free drink containers. During our meeting on Monday we laid out our expectations for the office and picked projects to focus on in the coming weeks and months. The vermiculture project is coming along as our wormy squirmy friends get used to their new home in Walnut Hall.
