Petey's Green Tips



(Environmentally Concerned Oglethorpe Students)

Fast Fact--> This student organization won a Presidential Award for Civic Engagement in 2006 for its establishment of the campus-wide recycling program.

This student organization—which goes by the acronym ECOS—is a meeting place for students who are interested in the environment and its stewardship. Membership has no requirements, but offers many rewards including conversation with peers who share environmental concerns, viewing of current and classic movies with environmental themes, lectures by regional experts on environmental topics, and participation in environmentally-themed campus activities. ECOS was instrumental in initiating the campus recycling program in 2006.

The organization meets on the first and third Thursday of every month from 7 - 9 p.m. in Lupton Auditorium.
