Get Involved

Oberlin offers students many ways to get involved with sustainability on campus. From the Bike Co-op to the Recycling Conservation Team, the George Jones Farm to the Campus Composting Work Group, green groups often need extra hands to get their projects off the ground.

During winter term and spring break, students often intern with such national green associations as the Sierra Club, the World Wildlife Federation, the National Zoo, among others. Their work ranges from outdoor schools to permaculture gardens.

Once on campus, you may choose to get involved in already established student groups that focus on green issues and environmental sustainability.
