Earth Day is coming up on Friday, April 22. The 2022 Earth Day theme is “Invest in Our Planet,” and in that spirit, many Life U students and student organizations are picking up trowels and signing up for Earth Day events. Green LIFE and Student Affairs have coordinated to offer several nature-centric events planned for the week leading up to Earth Day, culminating in an Earth Day Celebration at Lasting Purpose Plaza on Earth Day.
