The Southeastern Sustainability Society is looking for Southeastern students and staff advisors who have an interest in sustainable consumption practices and would like to contribute their own visionary efforts to Southeastern’s going green initiative.
This 2015 fall semester, the Southeastern Sustainability Society has yet to confirm that it’s an official Southeastern student organization to the Office of Student Engagement due to the lack of members and meetings the society has been able to have.
The Southeastern Sustainability Society President Danilo Miranda said that most members now are Southeastern graduate students who are close to graduating and do not have the time they would like to put forth toward the organization. Once the graduate students are gone, the society will need others who are willing to keep it running. He said, “We are looking for people who have passion, leadership skills and who would like to run the organization more effectively.”
Every semester since the society started over a year ago, it has been working towards a more environmentally friendly campus. The Southeastern Sustainability Society works on projects that involve great sustainability efforts and positive changes to Southeastern’s campus, such as fundraising for recycling bins, creating a community garden for different student organizations to contribute to, and the recycling efforts of electrical appliances made with University Housing.
