For adult learners, a study abroad component can pose unique challenges. But adult learners — many with full-time jobs, families or both — have found ways to successfully juggle the tasks to make studying abroad a reality.
In August 2017, more than 200 Penn State Brandywine students will move into the campus’s new residence hall. In addition to providing students with space, comfort and social opportunities, the residence hall and the new student union will be LEED-certified buildings.
Last summer, the Penn State Brandywine Vairo Library staff enrolled in the Green Paws program. Green Paws is a certification program designed to help offices at either University Park or other Commonwealth Campuses to be more sustainable.
This spring, Kevin Cauley and fellow Penn State Brandywine students Grace Smith and Christine Niche organized a trip to Philadelphia to clean the city’s streets and parks. They recruited nearly 15 students from both the Brandywine and York campuses to spend the afternoon disposing of litter and collecting recyclable items.
Penn State Brandywine presents “Earth Day 2016: Trees (not Trash) for the Earth” as part of the 2016 Spring Speaker Series at 11:30 a.m. April 12, in the Main Building, room 113. The lecture will discuss the pros and cons of cutting down old growth trees verses planting new growth trees and how both impact carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
This presentation will share the startling facts and figures about consumption and waste presented in Edward Humes’ book, "Garbology." Dr. Laura Evans and Brandywine students will present Jan. 29 at 12:30 p.m. in Tomezsko 103.
Brandywine faculty and staff collected about 2,000 used Keurig K-Cups with the intention to repurpose each to keep the single-serve, plastic brewing pods out of landfills. The revamped K-Cups -- now tree ornaments -- were attached to strands of lights, and added to a tree at the Tyler Arboretum on Dec. 1.
