Beyond the Classroom

BSU’s Sustainability Program engages students and the community beyond the classroom through multiple opportunities: internship opportunities throughout the year, a variety of research opportunities supervised by our dedicated faculty, and hands-on experiences in the real world through events during Sustainability Week and Sustainability Month.

BSU’s Sustainability Program offers 10 internship opportunities throughout the year: four interns in the fall, four interns in the spring, and one to two interns in the summer. Students also are encouraged to explore more job opportunities through Handshake (BSU's database for internship and career development), the internship office and Career Services.

Environmental Action Team (EAT)

EAT is an active student club on campus. EAT has been working closely with the Sustainability Program for a variety of interesting year-round events (such as movie nights, clear-up, pledge and the Climate March) on campus and in the community. One of the Sustainability Program coordinators usually serves as the academic advisor for the student group.

In October 2019, EAT was selected as the regional winner of the Organization of the Month by the National Residence Hall Honorary.
