screen-shot-2016-11-14-at-3-29-09-pmI am a sophomore with the goal of majoring in Communications and minoring in Spanish. I have been passionate about the environment and sustainability for as long as I can remember. I hope that through the Green Greek program we will be able to communicate to students in the Greek community why it is important to promote sustainability on campus and in our homes.
