HSU Green and NSO
The 1 for 1 gift to all new students participating in NSO. On August 2011, HSU Green partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation on a project to plant 450 trees wherever they're needed most over the course of the next year. It is by no coincidence that 450 is the same number of students that participated in NSO this fall. We went 1 for 1 on trees to students.
We have found out that most of the trees will be planted in Bastrop, TX., where the fires occurred. Bastrop, TX., is also the location that our Baptist Student Ministries will be doing their spring mission trip to help with cleanup and rebuilding in the aftermath of the fires.
HSU Green Movie Night - The Lorax;
On October 10th, 2011 at 8 pm, theGreenteam showed the movie, The Lorax, and then gave some educational information about reduce, reuse and recycle and how HSU is promoting and participating in those efforts, as well as how students can be involved.
