The Alverno College Community Conference on sustainability explored many ways in which we can all make simple changes to our daily routines and reduce our impact on the earth. The Business Journal was there too.
Every year, Alverno College hosts the Community Conference, an opportunity for students, faculty, staff and members of the community to take part in interactive sessions that all center around a particular topic. This year’s theme is A Tapestry of Sustainability, and focuses on the ways we can all incorporate more sustainable practices into our daily lives.
WUWM’s environmental reporter, Susan Bence, stopped by to talk with one of the organizers and two of the presenters. You can listen to her story at the link below.
Choosing a college can be stressful for both students and their parents. How do you know if the school you pick is the right fit? The first step in making that decision is visiting colleges that interest you, and you want to make sure you make the most of those campus visits. Kate Lundeen, vice president of Enrollment Services for Alverno College, appeared on “The Morning Blend” with tips to help make sure you do just that.
Alverno College was recently ranked number one on the list of “Most Innovative Schools” among Midwest Regional Universities in U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 America’s Best Colleges guidebook. Here’s the write-up in BizTimes:
For the third year in a row, Alverno College students took time on September 11 to place 2,977 flags in the Alumnae Courtyard. Each flag represents a victim of 9/11. The display is a stark reminder of how many lives were lost that day.
