Earth Day, celebrated April 22, is an annual, worldwide event in support of environmental protection. Approximately 20 million people across the United States celebrated the first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970. Today, more than 1 billion people around the world take part in the event.
In honor of this green initiative, the Sustainability Committee at Ursuline College has planned events throughout the month of April. The activities were created to bring environmental awareness and education to the Campus community.
Ursuline College has taken the first steps to transforming the campus with a ceremonial demolition Tuesday (March 25) morning. The symbolic demonstration ushers in the beginning of the College’s largest construction project in over 40 years.
The College recently reached a $5.3 million settlement with the College’s insurance provider after the O’Brien Athletic Center was destroyed by a tornado that struck the campus last July. A new $10 million facility constructed to accommodate the needs of Ursuline’s 1,500 students and College community will replace the original athletic center, constructed as a recreational facility for a then student population of 400.
