A Sampling of RISE Student Projects
All RISE students enroll in NSC 192 - Environmental Studies Seminar during their first semester at MSU. In the class, students learn about the principles of sustainable food production and visit campus sustainability resources. Students are encouraged engage in a co-curricular experience to improve sustainability in their campus home or neighborhood. The ability to collaborate with faculty within the neighborhood as part of their residential experience is value added to their college education and RISE benefits from the ongoing opportunities for student engagement in solving real-world issues. A few of the prior co-curricular projects are listed (and some are linked) below:
- Bailey Compost Initiative
- Rooftop Bees at Bailey Hall
- Feeding the Future: Cooking Workshops
- Vermicomposting: Worms Eat My Garbage!
- EARTH'D Recycling Educational Video
- Meals for Mealworms
- Bailey Mushroom Project
- Satellite Surplus Store
- Bailey Hammock Farm
- Liberty Hyde Bailey Hydroponics
