In a tucked-away corner of East Campus hidden behind the College of Law lies a small plot of land where students gather each week to connect, learn, and grow food for their peers. It is called the Student Organic Farm.
Hi! My name is Rachel Summers and I am an Environmental Studies major at UNL. I am currently studying to go into Environmental Law where I hope to eventually write environmental legislature, putting a focus on the need for sustainable practices and social justice issues within current policies.
Hi, my name's Breanna Epp, I started as the graphic designer for the Office of Sustainability back at the beginning of August 2020. I jumped right in with my first major project to create signage for the OS's biggest event of the year, the Sustainability Summit. While this was kind of daunting at first, I was supported by my team, and it helped me gain confidence with the office. Since that giant task, I have taken on a variety of projects from creating signs and handouts for the new Recycling Pilot Program to creating templates for social media posts.
Welcome to a new semester, Huskers! If you’ve been on campus over the past few weeks, you may have noticed a change in recycling and waste management in select buildings. In December, nearly 80 new grant-funded waste and recycling stations were installed in eight buildings as part of UNL’s recycling pilot project. These stations contain receptacles for paper, plastic and aluminum, and landfill materials and are located in centralized, high-traffic locations near restrooms, stairs and elevators, and building entrances.
