Missouri S&T will showcase its environmental and alternative energy
initiatives on Sept. 11, 2008, when the campus hosts “Greenfest” in
coordination with the Tour of Missouri event occurring that day in Rolla.
“The purpose of the event is to celebrate Missouri S&T’s commitment to
becoming a green campus that is focused on environmental sustainability and
energy conservation,” says Angela Rolufs, director of Missouri S&T’s
Institute for Environmental Excellence. Greenfest is being coordinated by
students who are enrolled in the Chancellor’s Leadership Academy, with
assistance from Rolufs.
Greenfest activities coincide with the Tour of Missouri stop in Rolla that
same day. Tour of Missouri, a cycling competition involving cyclists from more
than 20 countries, will cover more than 600 miles of the state from Sept. 8-14.
The cyclists stop in Rolla on the afternoon of Sept. 11 and depart the
following morning from nearby St. James, Mo., just east of Rolla.
