Matt Harrison Geeks out and Goes Green

gogreenMatthew Harrison C’05, who loved being President of CCSC so much that he decided to stick around after graduation, has been deluging Bwog’s inbox lately (okay, he sent us two emails) hyping up Environmental Sustainability Day (which is apparently tomorrow).

He geeked out a bit to let us know there is now an environmental section on the University Events Calendar, which we all check religiously at least four times every day after our emails, the NY Times, Gothamist, and of course, Bwog.

“It’ll be green for the next few days (to draw attention) and then turn green to match the rest of the site,” he writes.

He’s also tickled pink (er, green) by the header on Columbia’s Ask Us page, the “Go Green Columbia” logo on the header of CUIT’s website and the announcements on the SFS, Registrar, the ID Center, Housing, and Dining homepages. Yes, it’s also an event on our site right over there —–>

We know he loves this stuff. He knows we know he loves this stuff. He ends his email with: “I’m a dork.”

Thanks for keeping us up-to-date on the University’s (kind of overdue) campaign, Matt!

  • is it me says:

    @is it me or is stamping this shit all over the university’s web presence the most ridiculous waste of time, money, and resources imaginable?

  • well says:

    @well i can’t imagine it took very much time or money. and i don’t know what other resources you mean.

    1. well says:

      @well even the five seconds it may have taken to change the color code on one portion of the navigation bar of the calendar for example could have been spent on something more productive. as it is, they wasted power that was generated by some environmentally unfriendly means on it.

  • do you think says:

    @do you think anyone reads Gothamist, NYTimes, and Bwog four times a day who doesn’t write for Bwog?

    1. xap says:
