Earth Day

Earth Day at ISU began in 2009 as a speaker series in the Biology department and has expanded each year to encompass more aspects of sustainability. Today, Earth Day is a day-long celebration open to both campus and the community. Earth Day 2016 was the biggest celebration yet, including outdoor games, live entertainment, more than 50 local businesses and organizations offering educational activities about sustainability, an outdoor picnic catered by Sodexo, and the showing of a feature film outdoors
. Below, you can see the view of our celebration filmed from above.

ISU was recently named one of the top 11 places in the nation to celebrate Earth Day --
plan to join in the fun in 2017 for a truly unique and engaging Terre Haute experience!
