Beyond Beyond the Bottle: Shop Eco-friendly Classes!

It’s shopping period, ladies and gents, and I’m taking this opportunity to plug my favorite subject: the environment! I’m of the opinion that everyone should take a class with the word “environment(al)” in the title by the time they’ve graduated. You don’t think that sounds reasonable? Well, I’ve been doing my research, and environmental studies does a pretty good job of making itself relevant to most departments in one way or another. Just to make it easier for all of you lovely non-concentrators, I’m compiling a list of classes in other departments that satisfy my personal environmental studies requirement for the Brown community — no excuses now! Shop ’em while you can, and don’t forget to turn off the lights and grab your water bottles while you’re at it!
