Queens College Environmental Club:

The mission of this club is to participate in activities geared towards ameliorating the environment in which we dwell. In the past, we’ve held events such as the Cool Roofs Project, the Green Fair, a Sephora event with cruelty-free makeup, and several showings of movies about environmental issues like hydrofracking and the detriments of the processing of food. This club meets Wednesdays free hour (12:15-1:30) in the Student Union of Queens College

I started it in tenth grade. The funny thing is, my coach tossed me into the event when me and my friend were making fun of it and saying it looked like a joke… hooo BOY did I learn different XD It’s definitely very challenging for novices, and my first time was a pathetic 12:53. I’d have laughed in the face of anyone who told me what my time would be before graduating high school.
