Student Green Team

Founded in 2008, the Student Green Team is the student arm of sustainability on the campus.  All students are welcome.

The Green Team is a great opportunity for you to work with more than 150 fellow students and the Merrimack College community on a variety of sustainability and environmental activities and events. The group meets regularly and is involved in a wide range of activities on campus, including:

  • Promoting the campus recycling program in all residence halls and academic buildings
  • Planning annual events in partnership with the Center for Sustainability and the Environment
  • Helping organize environmental career events
  • Running campus clean-ups
  • Organizing field trips and social events

Open to all students, the Green Team is a great way to get your hands dirty and your mind involved in the greening of Merrimack and the greater community.
