Hey everyone, 

    I hope everybody has gotten a good start to the spring semester. There is an ESW social event this Saturday from 4 - 6 PM. We will be going ice skating at the Riverside Skating Center (http://www.westlafayette.in.gov/department/division.php?fDD=8-140). It will be about $6 per person for skate rental and admission. If you are able to go, please add your name on the google doc below and indicate whether you need a ride or would be able to provide a ride. We look forward to seeing you there!

Below are information and events that we think you may be interested in. 

Project Impact 

Project Impact is hosting a forum featuring Ian Urbina, a senior investigative journalist for The New York Times. He wrote a series called "Drilling Down" which examined the risks of natural-gas drilling and efforts to regulate the rapidly growing industry. He will discuss his research, along with his thoughts about other issues, especially those pertaining to the environment. 

The event will be on Wednesday, February 13th from 5-6 PM in Fowler Hall. A reception in the Stewart Gallery will follow the forum.


The GREEN Program is now accepting applications for our spring and summer programs.

Qualified and motivated student leaders from across the world will be selected to travel to Costa Rica and receive hand on exclusive access inside of renewable energy facilities, study sustainability in different fields, and overall, have a life changing experience. 

The GREEN Program's objective is to accelerate the careers of individuals interested in this field of study and to build a well-trained work force for the energy industry needs of tomorrow.
