[April 20, 2009]  The Lincoln College Student Senate is going green. In an effort to support environment awareness, the organization is planning a five-day event that will entertain, inform and encourage students to think about taking care of the environment. Student Senate members are kicking off a "Green Week" today.

Erica Glenn, a member from Homewood, said the focus of the group's efforts is appreciation of the environment. "The entire campus community pulled together to sponsor an event that helps the environment or brings awareness to going green. I am hopeful that our student body will support this," said Glenn.

Danielle Stanley, who chairs the committee for the project, along with committee members Jaydeh Sleh and Amanda Turner have organized activities supported by interest groups from across the campus. The planned activities include a student entertainment forum hosted by the LC Fine Arts Department, the movies "Erin Brockovich" and "An Inconvenient Truth," a scavenger hunt and sort organized by the Student Senate and Student Services, a vegetarian dinner planned and prepared by the college food service, and a community cleanup, sponsored by the LC Athletics Department, for Lincoln Memorial Park. In addition, sign-up opportunities will be available for a new Environmental Club on the Lincoln College campus.
