Last month, Saint Louis University hosted its second annual SLUstainability Week, sponsored by SLU's Sustainability Advisory Council. One of the highlights from the week was the publication of the second annual Campus Sustainability Report, which covered successes from the past year as submitted by the Division of Facilities Services and the Center for Sustainability. Also, this year students and staff were asked to show their Green Billiken spirit by wearing "green and jeans."

The SLUstainability Expo — the week's main event — brought in over 150 students, faculty and staff to learn about sustainability at Saint Louis University Oct. 24. Participating partners showcased alternative transportation, resource conservation, sustainability organizations, as well as green renovations recently completed at the Center for Global Citizenship. The event, also hosted special presentations from the Center for Sustainability, McCarthy/Fox Architects and St. Louis Green as a means to celebrate all of the sustainability activities happening on campus and throughout the St. Louis community.

The entire SLU community was commended for making this year's event a success. For more information about the event or suggestions on ways to make it bigger and better next year, contact
