The Green Living Community brings together students who are interested in learning more about the environment and sustainability outside of the classroom. Students from any major will benefit by increasing their environmental IQ and networking with environmental professionals from around the region.

The Green Living Community is more than just a place to learn about environmental practices; it offers an opportunity for students to take that knowledge and apply it to the greater community. Check out pictures from some past events...

Special Opportunities

A Themed Learning Community is a group of two to four courses taken by the same set of approximately 25 students over the course of a semester. These courses are taught in a way that will allow you to explore a common theme across all of the courses in your TLC.

If you decide to join the Green Living Community, we think you'd be interested in the "Leadership & Service" TLC. Learn more about Themed Learning Communities.
