If you’re interested in the issues discussed so far in this blog, there are many ways to get involved on the Linfield campus.  Here they are:

1. Take a class. The Environmental Studies Department offers a variety of classes each semester.  Several other departments occasionally offer classes on environmental issues as well: Biology, Economics, EnglishPhilosophy, Sociology and Anthropology, and others.

2. Join a club. Greenfield, an environmental issues group, is open to all students and meets every Monday at 8:00 pm in the Pioneer Reading Room.  The Garden Club, also open to all students, is responsible for maintaining Linfield’s new Community Garden, located next to Renshaw Hall.  The Garden Club meets every Tuesday at 7:00 pm in Riley 210.

3. Attend an event. Student organizations like Greenfield and the Linfield Bike Co-Op put on many different events throughout the year.  Get on the mailing list or join their facebook groups (Greenfield, Bike Co-Op) to stay in the know!

4. Volunteer. The aforementioned groups have tons of volunteer ops, but check out Linfield’s Community Service page to get involved.

5. Create a project. Linfield’s ACES (Advisory Committee on Environmental Sustainability) awards Sustainability Grants to students interested in completing a project that would further the campus in its progress toward a sustainable future.  Applications can be found here.  Learn more about projects that have already been awarded this grant here.

The opportunities don’t end on the Linfield campus!  Talk to professors and fellow students interested in these issues–you will learn about many other ways to get involved.
