Students in Sustainability

At CSB/SJU, we have a few ways both students and staff can get certified for their sustainability efforts. Programs such as the Green Residence and Green Office programs are fun, easy to join, and will help you and your roomates or office team be more sustainable! To learn more, check out the Green Residence Program and the Green Office Program pages.

What's your style of student involvement? Maybe you want to get your hands dirty growing greens for your friends with the Full Circle Greenhouse, reduce food waste and service the community with the Community Kitchen program, join Climate Justice Club or even submit a proposal to improve sustainability on campus! However you want to get involved, the Sustainability Office is here for you. Also, be sure to stay up to date with current student projects and events on our Instagram @csbsjusustainability.

Climate Justice Club

CJC works for education, activism, and tangible policy change on global climate and environmental justice from our campus. Students choose a Working Group (like CSB/SJU Fossil Fuel Divestment, Line 3 Activism, Outreach/Education and more) and work with friends to affect global change on the local scale.  The board meets regularly, as do working groups.

We are so lucky to have a locally owned grocery store right next to campus - only a 5-minute walk from most dorms.

St. Joseph Farmer's Market

Winter cold doesn't stop our local farmers and makers from having a market! Every Saturday from 9am-1pm the Winter Market is held in the Resurrection Lutheran Church. When it's warm out, the market is held underneath the St. Joe water tower at the same time.

Bennie Career Closet

The Bennie Career Closet provides a place right on campus to donate and "rent" professional and business attire - by Bennies, for Bennies. Check out their page for open hours or email for an appointment and stop by Murray 004!
