New recycling initiatives on
campus with help from Pepsi Co.

By HEATHER NORMAN
Contributing Writer

Students may see one or more of these recycling bins as they walk around campus. Above, the Store is home to one of these bins.

In efforts to become a more sustainable campus, Pepsi Co. is jump-starting the recycling campaign at Georgetown College with a donation of 25 large recycling bins to distribute in locations where heavy student congestion occurs. This is an initiative to make recycling more of a priority on our campus and to reduce our growing amount of waste deposited in a landfill each week. Pepsi Co. is using Georgetown College as a pilot school to determine the most effective way to encourage sustainable practices on small college campuses. A group of students have decided upon the following locations for the recycling bins:

1. In the Caf by the conveyor belt

2. Outside the Caf

3. Mailroom area

4. Outside the C-Store near the main entrance to the Grille

5. The Store

6. Entrance to Asher on the middle level

7. Entrance to the Rec

8. Entrance to the workout room in the Rec

9. Outside the Mulberry

10. Entrance to the LRC

11. Second floor of the LRC

12. Third floor of the LRC

13. Chapel basement

14. Cooke Memorial main hallway on the bottom floor

15. Basement of Anderson outside the classrooms

16. Admissions Office

17. Main hallway of the Art Building

18. Davis-Reid Alumni Gymnasium main entrance

19. Alumni Gym beside concession stand

20. Pawling Hall, first floor, Jackson side

21. Pawling Hall, first floor, Caf side

22. Student Wellness Center

The last three recycling bins are used for special events around campus.

This semester, Pepsi Co. will sponsor a video challenge where students have the opportunity to create the slogan for the sustainability and recycling campaign. This video challenge will include various prizes to the winners provided by Pepsi Co.

More details will be available soon. If you have any ideas, know of any locations on campus that would be well-suited for a recycling bin, or would like to become involved in these efforts, email hnorman1@georgetowncollege.edu.


Meet Multi-Media Artist Stein March 3

Stein will be presenting her exhibition “The Fluidity of Gender,” beginning March 3. Above: “MascuFem 681,” 2010.

Linda Stein, best known for her figurative sculpture, is bringing her traveling multi-media exhibition— “The Fluidity of Gender”—to the Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery March 3-April 7. Meet the New York City-based artist at the opening reception from 5-7 p.m. on March 3; she’ll lecture about her work from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

The show is a continuation of “Knights,” her series which consisted of metal, “amazon-like” human torso forms. Now, however, she has created a new series of torso sculptures made of leather with metal and/or an overlay of comic strip sections featuring “Wonder Woman.”

Founder/President of the nonprofit corp. HAVE ART: WILL TRAVEL! Inc., Stein focuses on empowering male and female gender roles for greater peace and equality. She is art editor of “On the Issues” Magazine, and in her writings and lectures, she explores sexism in the art world and elsewhere. For more information, visit her website: www.LindaStein.com or go to www.HaveArtWillTravel.org.
