Senior animal science major Jenny Smolek traveled to San Francisco in early December as one of 12 finalists in Project Green Challenge, a nationwide sustainability contest. Approximately 2,600 college and high school students took part in the competition, which offered participants the opportunity to earn points by completing a “green” challenge each day during the month of October. Jenny joined finalists from Johns Hopkins University, Indiana University and other colleges and secondary schools at the two-day eco-summit that climaxed the competition.

“It was amazing!” Jenny said. “We heard informative and inspirational speeches from various eco-heroes. We were also able to collaborate with them to develop programs that we can implement on our campuses and [at] other schools nationwide.”

This academic year, Jenny is one of 14 Berry students taking part in a unique experiment in green living – the Berry Environmental Living and Learning (BELL) House. The pilot program provides students with the opportunity to live together in an environmentally responsible manner while also promoting sustainability through outreach efforts across campus.
