Campus Sustainability Day

Campus Sustainability Day is a time to celebrate sustainability on campus every fall during Homecoming at Coastal Carolina University. The event brings together new groups and allies on campus, highlighting student stories, planning for the future and reaching out to the community. The day is devoted to the achievements of the staff, faculty and students who are contributing to a more sustainable future through instilling sustainability principles, policies, and practices into the institution and community.
