Why should you attend?  “The SGA is excited to roll out its Green Week for students,” said Katie Arrington, SGA’s director of environmental affairs. “On Wednesday specifically, we encourage all students to either not take a bag when they go grocery shopping or to stop by the SGA office and get a reusable grocery bag! We ask students to do simple things like go to a self check out and not take a bag or go to the Supe Store and, instead of taking a bag for one book, just stick the book directly in your backpack.”
