campus can do more for environment
By Antoinette Vega
The phrase a
little goes a long way doesnt apply when it comes to
TCUs efforts to be environmentally conscious. On the surface,
the green grass and the neatly-kept grounds give TCU the appearance
of being an environmentally conscious school, but is it? Students
may think that they are doing all they can for the environment on
campus, but the fact is they could be doing much more.
initiatives for recycling are helpful for earth
By Claudia Smith Brinson
Never had I
seen so much stuff. New stuff, expensive stuff. Not really necessary
stuff. But stuff college students would die without.
New stereos and CD players boxed in Styrofoam and cardboard. New
down comforters shrouded in zipped plastic. New computers encased
in bubble wrap and surrounded by polystyrene package fillers and
cardboard. Area rugs so new fumes waft through the gathered plastic.
Desk lamps still protected by plastic. Clock radios and hair dryers
still in cardboard boxes. Laser printers still in cardboard boxes.
