dc.description.abstract As issues of sustainability become a higher priority in many sectors of our communities, college communities are no exception. It is important for college students to have an understanding of these issues. The purpose of this guide is to let students know why environmental responsibility is important while they are a part of the Ball State campus community. Specifically tailored to Ball State University students, the guide explains the point of view of the author on the issue of being a sustainable student. It provides information about the history of sustainability on campus—from the creation of administrative committees to the purchasing of hybrid-electric vehicles. Finally it provides recommendations for sustainable practices Ball State students can adopt, with emphasis placed on recommendations that will require little time or money. The recommendations include the following areas of life: at home, in class, how they get around, what they eat and what they buy. The guide is light and informal, so as appeal to students' interests and not to seem like a traditional research document.
