New members are always welcome!
Let's kick off another great semester of sustainability!
Our first general meeting is September 6 at 11am in FLITE 133.
An Organization dedication to excellence in sustainability. We strive to improve our campus and the environment through the act of providing sustainability based education, information and events. One of our major goals is to make recycling more easily accessible to all students and faculty. The cornerstone of the group is the 3 Rs mentality, which is reduce, reuse, and recycle as well as its relation to the economy, culture and human progression. A perfect group for those interested in recycling on campus, alternative energy, resource management, environmental issues, sustainable business practice or just looking for volunteer hours. BSA hosts multiple events per semester ending of each year with a host of Earth Week Festivities. BSA encourages all members to get involved and provides many opportunities for volunteering and leadership. 2015-16 promises to be our biggest and best year yet with lots of new plans developing quickly. Everyone is always welcome at any of our meetings and no dress code is required.

Why should people join? What makes your group special? What will students gain by being a member?
We are currently working on implementing recycling campus wide. We also host events to let students know who we are and what we are trying to accomplish, as well as to try to instill our vision of a sustainable future. We have also started a new program that has helped us take members to large music festivals such as Electric Forest to work on green teams and we hope to expand on this project further this year.
Does your group have a fundraising, volunteer, or service initiative? Do you consistently work with a non profit organization?
While we provide an ample amount of opportunities in volunteer and service work, our fundraising methodology and goals in these three areas are under new development.
