National Media Event at PSU This Wednesday! Register and Recruit Today!

PSU was chosen as one of 5 schools in the nation to receive national media attention when hosting a live webcast with Al Gore this Wednesday (October 29th). Think Wall Street Journal and New York Times. Wim Wiewel (PSU President ), Noelle Studer (Sustainability Coordinator), Hannah Fisher (student body President) and another city official will also be speaking at the event.
Young people are voting in record numbers in this election, proving to our elected officials that we're more engaged than any other generation and leading the way toward climate and energy solutions! Many local measures are very important to our school and state, and they are often won by just a few votes. Help us get out the vote at PSU!

The three schools in the nation with the most RSVPs at midnight tonight will get a shout-out from Al Gore during the webcast. We're currently in 3rd place. Please help us make this a successful media event for Environmental Club and our school by signing up now. Thank you so much. Here's the link:
