Welcome back!


Published in 2014

Boozoo (hello in Ojibwe)!

We are excited to have everyone back on campus! Our office has been busy preparing for the arrival of new students as well as returning ones. BSU takes pride in its environmental movements, with Environmental Stewardship as one of its three Signature Themes. Here is a list of sustainability projects YOU can take advantage of while you study at BSU:

1. Elkay Water filling stations. We are working towards our goal of having at least one of these filtered water-bottle filling stations in every building! Use them to fill your reusable water bottle.

2. Freshman and new transfer students make sure you get your free (yes I said free) water bottle of coffee mug from the Sustainability Office.

 

3. Bucky’s Nice Ride. ┬áThis program is a semester long bike rental program for students.

4. Volunteer Opportunities. Whether it is through our office or out in the community, we have opportunities for you to fill your service learning hours!

5. Events. We have events going on all the time- make sure to like us on Facebook for all the updates!

6. Recycling. We recycle containers (tins, glass, aluminum, and #1 and 2 plastic) and fibers (cardboard, office paper phone books, magazines) here on campus- make sure to sort your trash!

7. Students for the Environment. SFE is the student organization with a mission to educate campus on environmental issues. For more information, contact Jordan at jordan.morgan@live.bemidjistate.edu

You pay $5 for the Green Fee every semester- take advantage of what we do for you!

If you have more questions or ideas for a project, contact Erika and ebaileyjohnson@bemidjistate.edu, 218-755-2560, or stop in the Sustainability Office, located in the Lower Hobson Union across from the bookstore!

"We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy -sun, wind and tide. ... I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that."
~ Thomas Edison to Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone (1931)
