A brief description of the event(s):

The campus participates each fall in AASHE's annual Campus Sustainability Day, and has for a number of years.

"Come join the Institute for Sustainable Development and the Associated Students Sustainability Program in celebrating AASHE’s 10th annual Campus Sustainability Day - Wednesday October 24th 2012. Campus Sustainability Day is devoted to the achievements of - and challenges for - the students, faculty, and staff who are integrating sustainability principles and practices into their institutions and surrounding communities. Together, we’re moving society forward to a sustainable future. As individual campuses we are strong, but as a movement, we are stronger still.

Campus Sustainability Day at Chico State will be a time to reflect - on campus sustainability programs and initiatives you knew about and many you didn’t, and a time to connect - to like-minded people and all kinds of great opportunities for involvement on campus. A campus sustainability open house will be held in the Bell Memorial Union auditorium from 9am to 1pm and will include displays highlighting sustainability programs and practices from across the campus. Chico State was recently named to the Princeton Green Guide’s Honor Roll - learn about all the great work that’s contributed to this recognition - in Facilities, Academics, Housing, Dining, the Associated Students, Campus Governance, and much more!

The open house will include a raffle, with prizes including free Zipcar memberships, free local lunches, and a free bike, and will feature talks about campus sustainability during the lunch hour and a campus sustainability tour at the end. Coordinated efforts for the week include recognition of National Food Day and participation in the Real Food Challenge; a campus Carpool or Bike to Work Challenge, sponsored by Zimride, with a chance for participants to win a gift certificate to Sierra Nevada Restaurant; and Sustainability in the Curriculum Week – an invitation for campus faculty to discuss sustainability as it relates to their field in the classroom during the week of October 24th."
