Splash happens every fall, to introduce all the freshman to Clubs and Activities on Campus. We were part of the "Green Section" Where all the clubs dedicated to sustainability were congregated.

Words to Live By: Ride it like you stole it and Eat more Kale
I tried to get Windows Live Writer to work, but my tiny battery died on me

We met a lot of fun people-(Extreme Croquet Club I will be hitting you up!) And Spread the Word:
Hello BU!
Last night we attended a Sustainability Dinner with The Director of Sustainability at BU, Dennis Carlberg. It was in StuVii 2-the new residence hall, which is unbelievably nice!! Like, fancier than a lot of hotels I've been in! The Dinner was up on the 26th floor and just check out the view!!!
It was a gathering for the student groups and administration to talk about what BU is doing sustainably and where there was still room for improvements. All while eating a Zero Waste, locally grown meal!
Love Food Hate Waste!
Kelly Dunn, our favorite Sustainable Dining Coordinator did a presentation working to reduce food waste at BU.
SFBU has worked with her on ideas for making a more sustainable dining services, and she is very receptive.
Slow Food is ready to rock this semester!

And So Am I! Classes Started today, and I had one exciting class, Community Nutrition with Joan Slage Blake and I think its going to be really good! I mean, the woman tweets! love it!

Ok, Time to turn off the computer!

Joan is such a spark of energy! I've met her through MDA - you're lucky to have her as a teacher!
