Despite autumn having finally found its way onto campus, the grass is still green on the academic quad here at Tufts! This past weekend, the Tufts Eco-Reps helped welcome members of the local cities of Medford and Somerville to our campus for Community Day at Tufts. Meant to bring the Tufts, Medford, and Somerville communities together, Community Day had a number of student performance groups showcased as well as a few groups running booths and tables on the main academic quad.
The Reps had a great time running the apple carving station that included stamping and decorating our own fruit sculpted masterpieces. The event was meant to raise awareness for the almost unlimited potential behind reusing everyday items. Overall, it was a great chance to reach out to other members of the community and have a little fun while we’re at it.
Going ahead, you can look forward to a number of campaigns that the Eco-Reps will be hosting in each of the dorms on campus, with the intention of raising awareness for specific sustainability related issues. Coming up soonest is H2(WHAT)!?, a water themed trivia night on October 3rd from 8-10 PM in the Hill Hall Lounge hosted by Eco-Reps Audrey and Chantal. Don’t forget to bring your own glass, and you could win a new reusable water bottle!
As the semester progresses, keep an eye out for your dorm’s Eco-Rep as we continue to work our hardest in trying to make green living at Tufts a little easier.
