September 21, 2015

Open to everyone 5-7 p.m.

Visit either Dejope lawn or Gordon lawn

Students in UW Housing can meet for the RES group kick-off from 5-5:30 p.m. (see locations below) and then head over to the event together!

Celebrate sustainability!

Living in the residence halls is an integral part of the college experience. Enhance that experience by learning how to live sustainably at the second annual Sustain-A-Bash!

University Housing, WE CONSERVE and the Office of Sustainability are teaming up to provide a fun and interactive event where students can connect with other sustainability-minded students on campus. Student organizations will have information about how you can get involved with sustainability both on and off campus, and you can also learn about great ways to volunteer and boost your resumé!

Join us for food, fun and prizes
Look for activities and prizes related to water, energy and waste including:

  • Bike-powered milkshakes
  • Extra large beach ball
  • Water game
  • Free fresh vegetables

IMG_6557Don’t have the first clue about sustainability? Don’t worry – we all have to start somewhere. Whether you think you are a recycling expert or novice, we encourage you to join the celebration on September 21 at either Dejope lawn or Gordon lawn at 5-7 p.m. See how you can start making sustainable choices today by visiting the UW–Madison Guide to Sustainable Living.

Free food and prizes will be provided.
