Green Week!

It’s Green Week here on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus, and (as you know) that means that emerald hues are mandatory attire, every dining court is serving green eggs and ham, and all green-eyed students receive extra credit.

They ought to listen to my suggestions sometime.

But the bell tower lights are green, if you haven’t noticed yet. Here’s what else is going on as our lovely campus honors sustainability:

Maybe campus events aren’t your thing, but you can still make the change. Remember to turn off your lights when you leave your room, use your On-the-Go bottle, and challenge yourself to take five minutes off your shower time.

Go green!
