Students for Environmental Action
Students for Environmental Action is the group working to make Brandeis, and the World, a more healthy, just, and sustainable place. One of the largest and most active clubs on campus, they work on a variety of campaigns throughout the year and organize the fantastic Earth Week in April.

NaturaLiving Club
Their goal is to promote natural living in everyday life and educate members of the Brandeis Community about the personal changes they can make to connect themselves more to the Earth. Natural living includes, but is not limited to: reconnecting to our food by engaging with local farmers, educating students about where their food is coming from and how it is grown, "made-from-scratch" cooking techniques, gardening, and taking nature walks.
