  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Environmental Action Group new camapign “Greening BGSU”; reached 7,000 signatures

The University campus has been looking to go green. The point is to help the environment on campus. The University has several green initiatives to help make the campus more environmentally friendly. The campaign is called “Greening BGSU.”

One of the groups supporting this effort is the Environmental Action Group, also known as EAG. They are part of the campaign for 100 percent clean energy. Madison Thomas, president of EAG, said in an email that the campaign this year is going well.

Thomas also said that so far they have over 7,000 signatures from students and faculty members who are all for 100 percent clean energy.

“We are excited to see the enthusiasm from the students and faculty,” she said. “We, as a group, feel like this a great accomplishment to have 17,000 students on campus.”

One of EAG’s goals for the semester is to get 10,000 of 17,000 students to sign the petition. Thomas said the group plans on doing a lot of events on campus to get the students more involved and are collaborating with their 50 coalition partners.

“We want to focus on bringing awareness to students, faculty and the community,” she said.

The Office of Sustainability is a major help for the organization because they are helping them reach their goal of 100 percent renewable energy, Thomas said.

The office has three main initiatives that fall under the mission of EAG. The practices and policies of the University are to help the campus become more green, improving the design and efficiency of facilities and to strengthen a culture of environmental stewardship for the entire university community.

Student involvement is very important to the success of EAG. Vice President and senior Kaitlyn Trent said that even before she came to the University she wanted to make a difference.

“I always knew that I wanted to be involved and make a difference with the environment,” she said. “My mom was always a big supporter of the environment and it was something I felt was for me as well.”

Thomas said the group is constantly getting new members. She said they are in the process of growing the EAG Family. All majors and backgrounds have a place at EAG Thomas said. Senior Cheyenne Nawrot said that she has heard about the sustainability movement and supports it.

“I think that this is something really positive for the campus,” she said. “I feel like it’s important to help the environment and I would definitely be willing to help out.”

Thomas said President Mazey has signed on to the President’s Climate Commitment, which is an agreement to help the university “Go Green.”

EAG would love to see the campus go above and beyond, and take the University all the way to 100 percent clean energy and be completely carbon neutral.
