A lot of people like to think that global warming isn’t a serious issue. Maybe they do not want to put the effort into helping, or maybe they are going along with the whole “ignorance is bliss” thing. Either way, people need to wake up and realize that this is a serious issue that is not only affecting them, but also the generations to come if something is not done.
With spring in full effect, there have been many events going on at UAlbany to make you, as a student, more involved in the campus, as well as making the earth a greener place.
April Showers Brings May Flowers!
1. Trashion Fashion: This years Trashion Fashion show displayed 15 outfits made completely out of trash or recycled materials.
