So if you get a free minute or just need a break, come show your School of Law support by showing up to one of these events! Here are the details:
The USD community celebrates sustainability April 14-24 with "Planting the Seeds of Change." A collaboration of student organizations and university departments, events are organized around Earth Day.

. Visit the touch tank at the Marine Science and Environmental Studies'
booth. Trams will run, on the hour, from the UC to Balboa Park.
Farmer's Market and Fair Trade Booths April

produce from local growers; vendors supporting fair trade practices
will also be on hand with their products.
Dumpster "Dump and Sort" April
22: Don't be surprised when you see a pile of garbage on the lawn in
front of Maher Hall on Earth Day. Students will separate what we've
thrown in the garbage to demonstrate how much more of our garbage can be recycled so it doesn't go into the landfill.
