Green Campus Steering Committee

Student Clubs

  • Green Club, Florham Campus
  • Green Club, Metro Campus

Events

Make a campus-wide effort to think about environmental issues: recycle your old books and small electronics; enjoy the green space around campus. Activities of Green Campus included outdoor games, information about environmental friendly organizations and products, and a river clean-up at Metro Campus. Additionally, our Plant Sale includes flowers and herbs grown in our own campus greenhouses. Check your knowledge with Environmental Jeopardy.

  • Students in English classes could write a descriptive essay about their trip down the river, or a persuasive essay about the information they acquired from vendors at an environmental event.
  • Students in a psychology class studying behavior change could explore theories that might be useful in increasing recycling or other pro-environmental behavior.
  • Students in a history class could research the political support for and opposition to environmental regulation.
