The name and a brief description of each student group:
The Energy Management Student Association is a campus-recognized club active in learning about energy efficiency and conservation both on campus and in the community. Between 2008 and 2012, the Save the Earth Club was very active on campus. Their slogan was "saving the earth one community project at a time" and spent their time organizing and planning service activities in the local community. They have not yet chartered as a club this year, but are in the process of finding new leadership.
