The Students for Environmental Awareness at Rutgers University strive to make students aware of environmental issues going on around us. They attended the rally against the Keystone Pipeline in D.C, went to the Environmental Film Festival during spring break, volunteered to restore a beach, and are working on a campaign to have Rutgers divest from fossil fuels.
Their trip to the annual Environmental Film Festival in Washington, D.C during spring break was their first time taking a long-distance trip. During their trip they watched new environmental films that came from all over the country and world.
They saw films such as The Last Ocean,” “My Louisiana Love,” and “Jane’s Journey.” Ruchi Patel, S.E.A President says “It was an exciting and inspirational experience; the movies we had the privilege of seeing were eye-opening to say the least.”
