Johnny Lu

In honor of Georgia Southern University’s first electric vehicle charger station, a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at noon to celebrate GSU’s growth and development in campus sustainability initiatives.

As a part of No Impact Week 2016 (April 10-17), the ribbon cutting is only one of the many educational activities and exhibits held during the week of spreading sustainability awareness. Other events throughout the week include Yoga at the Garden, a Dump the Pump challenge and Spring into Statesboro.

Partnering with Georgia Southern’s Parking and Transportation Department, the event is funded by student sustainability fees and presented by GSU’s Center for Sustainability.

In addition to the ribbon cutting, students will have the chance to test-drive electric cars such as the Nissan Leaf and Volt. Held next to the Parking and Transportation Building, students are invited to join Representative Tankersley and GSU’s very own Dr. Jean Bartels for the ceremony.
