Every day landfills are filled with items that could be recycled, but there are students that are taking their own initiative to counteract this.
Bethany Abresch, a freshman nursing major, has bins set up in her room in Parkhurst Hall to collect recyclable items.
Yesterday marked the 40th anniversary of Earth Day and students have shown their desire to protect the planet during Earthfest this week.
Events such as the Community Environmental Symposium, recycle drive, light bulb exchange and tree planting were held throughout the week leading up to Saturday’s planned Earthfest activities featuring live bands, eco-friendly games, arts and crafts and much more.
Nestled behind the trees of Brown’s Crossing Road lays the home of Marsha and Darryl Herren. The Herrens run the Olive Forge Herb Farm, one of the last remaining herb farms in Georgia. They grow herbs like rosemary, lavender, coriander and cilantro, and sell their wares in their two-room shop.
There are many free useful resources for GCSU students on campus that remain unused, but the peopleare still willing to help.
Graduate student tutors like Stephen McCormick and Matt Jurak staff a writing center, located in Lanier Hall.
The main goal of the Writing Center is not to proofread papers and deal with grammatical errors, but to help students try and write better papers in general.
Between August 2009 and April 2010 the University Career Center has had over 314 meetings with students to provide them with advisement and information on employers, applications and interviews. The Career Center, located on the second floor of Lanier Hall, seeks to empower students of all ages to avidly pursue career and educational decisions that are the best for them.
Success. The word that keeps many students alive and keeps us up late studying for tests and writing papers.
The idea that we will graduate one day and become “successful” rings in the back of our heads when we wake up for 5 a.m. registration or when we get that small high from studying between the books until the librarian kicks us out.
