WVU Participates in Sustainability Awareness Week

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia University's Sustainability Awareness Week kicked off on Sunday.

Students from different sororities and fraternities came together to show their support for their campus.

They did this as part of WVU's Sustainability Awareness Week 'Campus Cleanup'

"I get involved because I love sustainability and I love our campus," said Alyssa Mariano, director of sustainability in WVU's student government. "So I want to keep it clean and keep it clean for everyone else too."

The Campus Cleanup is exactly what it sounds like, WVU students volunteer their time to help clean up the area in and around WVU's campus.

Sustainability Awareness Week at WVU is held to incorporate sustainable practices at WVU.

"There are two core aspects of the awareness week," said Clement Solomon, director of Sustainability at WVU. "We want to talk about what we do, but talk about what we can do."

Students who volunteered said they do this to show support for not only their school, but the Morgantown community.

"I think every student should do some sort of community service," said Jarred Zuccari, a volunteer. "This is something I enjoy because we're keeping this place beautiful the way we found it."
