Student Green Team

The Student Green Team is the student arm of Sustainable Merrimack.

Students in the Environmental Studies and Sustainability (ESS) Program have an opportunity to work with fellow students and the Merrimack College community on a variety of sustainability activities through the Student Green Team.

The Student Green Team was founded in 2008 and includes over 150 students. The Green Team meets regularly and is involved in a wide range of activities on campus.

Green Team activities include:

  • Co-Operating the Campus Recycling Program in all the residence halls and academic buildings
  • Co-Planning the Annual Blue, Gold and Green Sustainability Festival each spring
  • Running campus clean-up programs
  • Planning sustainable-themed Homecoming events
  • Organizing and running Field Trips
  • Holding Green Social Events on campus
  • Working with Sustainable Merrimack in efforts to build a more sustainable Merrimack campus

The Green Team is open to all students on the campus and is a real opportunity to get your hands dirty and your mind involved in both the Greening of Merrimack and the greater community.
