An update from Jason, a senior majoring in music composition, with a minor in history:

J1.jpg Nothing represents the beauty of environmental awareness like Colorado. So it is fitting to be here in Denver for the 2010 AASHE Conference, focusing on campus sustainability!!!

J3.JPGI am here as a composer thinking about numerous ideas. First, I would like to find someone to collaborate with in order to increase environmental awareness.

Second, a coal-fired power plant is being constructed by my home in Riesel, Texas, so since I did not win against the power plant’s construction, I hope to keep pressing forward for a better environment here. Persistence pays off.

Third, I want to increase my knowledge of “green” – there is a plethora of knowledge here!

Sunday was mostly an orientation day, so I found time to head out to Boulder and hike up around the Rockies in Chataqua Park with a couple of friends. Included here are a couple of pictures of what earth looks like, clean and untouched.
