Student Action

Students and groups taking action to improve sustainability at Texas State and beyond:

  • "Take Back the Tap" events and exhibits on campus, September 15, 2010: click here (pdf slides)

  • Student Austin Prowse, a journalism major, responds to the solar panel demonstration on campus and concepts of solar-derived energy: click here (pdf). To see Prowse's photos from the solar panel demonstration, visit the Common Experience events photo gallery.

  • The African American Leadership Conference (September 9-12, 2010), will not purchase water. Instead, the University Bookstore will provide water bottles that will be distributed at the AALC registration. Registrants will be instructed to use their bottles throughout the conference. This will save hundreds of dollars, as an estimated 1,000 bottled water containers were previously used for this conference.

  • Moving from 16 students in former Business Law Honors class to the McCoy College Net Impact Undergraduate Student Organization to motivating over 4,000 entering freshman at Texas State University to use environmentally-friendly drying racks in lieu of coal-burning electricity using dryers, Wear the Sun highlights the benefits of solar drying and using drying racks.
