Summer Vacation

Summer is a time for planning, catching up on work and researching in the sustainability office. Not that exciting but some of the sustainability council members are having a much more exciting summer.
Jonny Puglia, chair of the Dutch Council, was accepts for the week long camp for Environmental Protection at George Washington University. He is learning on how to better unite groups on campus through networking to promote sustainability awareness.
Jeremy Grunstra, chair of the State council, landed a gig with Reverb selling carbon offsets at the Dave Matthews Band concert in Bethel Woods.
