Have you been to the library recently and wondered what was being displayed on the 1st floor?

Now through April 22, the Sustainable Showcase Exhibit, hosted by the Center for Sustainability is here to inform students about the ways in which Georgia Southern has “gone green.”

This exhibit showcases solar powered golf carts, the bottle recycling program, the campus cycle program, low maintenance buses, living walls and solar powered robots. All of these projects have and will help reduce energy use, pollute less, produce cleaner water and educate the campus and community about sustainability, here at Georgia Southern!

As these projects are funded by Student Sustainability Fees, many think their money is going to a good use. “I think that the Sustainability exhibit is a really cool way to bring awareness to students about what we can do to strive to be more conservative when it comes to the energy we use.” Gabby Burke, a freshman biology major, said.

Be on the lookout for more events throughout No Impact Week, such as the Campus Farmer’s Market, the 2nd Annual Ocean Film Festival, Ride Your Bike to Campus Day, and more!
