sustWatch out, Bears — Cal has a lean, green, pro-sustainability machine. And it’s got some teeth. Last Friday marked the grand opening of the Student Environmental Resource Center (SERC), a brand-new project led by ASUC Senator Nolan Pack and funded by the Green Initiative Fund (TGIF? Clever!). Currently housed in an interim location adjacent to the campus bookstore and the SLC, the SERC strives to strengthen and expand the sustainability efforts of the Cal community, offering information, services, jobs and research opportunities to students and student groups interested in environmental justice, natural resource management and every facet of sustainability in between.

Interested in becoming involved with SERC? Or just plain curious? Friend them on Facebook!

Stay green, you Bears.

Nevermind the voyeuristic angle of this video, it appears the TGIFers had a pre-election flash mob on campus. And although the referendum to increase campus green projects passed, this pulsating event certainly affected the environment and our memories in a lasting way. It was too good not to share.

The big spenders certainly know how to bring in the green: by taking it off! The dance classic “Call On Me” becomes a rallying cry for the TGIFers. So hott.
