Bottled Water Ban

Published in 2015

As you all may have heard, the BSU Student Senate unanimously voted on passing the bill that would ban the sale of bottled water on campus! This means that the sale of unflavored, plain bottled water will no longer be an option to buy on campus starting as of the Fall 2016 semester. Adding more Elkay water bottle filling stations to campus buildings is in the works. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to stop by the sustainability office to voice them.

On February 24th at 2 pm, MPR will be on campus doing a radio broadcast. This will be held in Hagg-Sauer 100.

"You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give."
