Meet the Greens Fall 2014: A Success Story

~By Calandra Waters Lake, Director of Sustainability


The first Meet the Greens was a huge hit this freshman orientation! We had over 15 tables of sustainability groups, classes, and projects set up on the Crim Dell Meadow with lots of opportunities to sign up for organizations, volunteer for activities, and learn about the sustainability initiatives on the W&M campus. Campus Outdoor Recreation had an awesome set up with a slack line, tent, scooter, and kayak gear, while the Bike Initiative displayed the many biking routes available, and Campus Gardens offered a free bowl of yummy veggies. A great time was had by as students moved through tables, music played, and connections were made! Sponsored by the Committee on Sustainability this will be just one of multiple new ways to interact and get involved with our growing sustainability program, so maybe I’ll see you at the next event!
