Power Shift is coming!

Dear fellow shifters,

Hello, this is Joe from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Office of Admissions again. Just wanted to give a quick post about a meeting I sat in on last night. The meeting was sponsored by the upcoming Power Shift event which will be happening in Washington DC at the end of February. This is an opportunity for people all over the country to come together to share their thoughts, concerns and hopes for the future of the environment. I was impressed to see such a wide variety of students attending this meeting on campus. It seemed like a real community event. Parents with their children attended, undergraduates, graduates, staff members, and more were present. I was impressed with the dedication to the environment, and I can only hope that the response was as positive on other campuses throughout the nation and world. I know that some students and community members from Fairbanks will be attending, and I hope that many more attend. I won't be able to attend, unfortunately, but I will be following the event and related events closely. Remember, that's!

Thanks for reading, and have a great day. I'll post again soon about some more excitement!

Thanks for posting on this Joe! Yes, if you are reading this you should check out Power Shift. It is time we realize our future is green! Look for awesome events being hosted by Sustainable Campus Task Force and Pi Sigma Alpha later this semester, especially during Earth Day.
