Environmental Science Club

I'm the faculty sponsor of the environmental science club. We focus on the "environmental" much more than the "science club" so please don't show up expecting chemistry experiments and lab coats. 

What do we do? We try to make the campus more green and try to learn more about sustainability and help others in the community learn more about it. We like adventure! We camp, kayak, hike, rock climb and explore. We've done weird stuff like build rafts from junk we got at the Scrap Exchange and create a six foot tall erupting volcano as a prank. Sometimes we do things that don't seem like they have to do much with the environment or science like visit Defy Gravity, learn how to box, build potato guns, eat sushi, and play rugby. We host an event called the Thrift Swap which is like a huge yard sale where everything is free!

Oh, and we have snacks.

We're looking for people who want to have fun. 

We meet on Main Campus in Collins 222 every Thursday at 3:30. If you can't make meetings but you are interested in field trips, email me at

*A special note about language classes - If you are just finishing up a language course this spring, you should seriously consider continuing on during the summer. Most students find it easier if they don't take time off between classes. Also, these summer courses generally have smaller classes with more one-on-one attention from the instructor. If you have any questions about taking language classes or want to take a placement test to see which levels is best for you, contact Shannon Hahn at
