The 2017 EcoChallenge was a fun and informative success! In celebration of Earth Month this April, 94 students, staff, faculty, and alumni came together for three weeks to learn about how their everyday behaviors impact our environment and communities, and to act to improve their consumption habits.
We want to give a special thanks and congratulations to the winners of this year's EcoChallenge. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication! Also, a huge THANK YOU to our sponsors BonAppétit and Food with Spirit for contributing some wonderful items for the gift bags of the EcoChallenge winners.
