B.U.R.N. (Biochar Utilization of Resources through Non-Exploitive Methods)

We are striving to utilize the limitless potentials for Biochar on a local and international scale. Our goals as a group will be to carry a nonexploitive lens while learning as much as we can about the potentials for Biochar, educating our comrades to help in its implementation, and begin a program with a lasting impact for the Evergreen student to be a part of.

Cooper Point Journal

Cooper Point Journal organization members commit their efforts to two primary purposes: compiling submissions from students at large to create a newspaper that focuses on and reflects the student citizens of The Evergreen State College and examines how matters, particularly within the college, affect and involve students. The newspaper - also named Cooper Point Journal - serves as a medium for informing and entertaining students and as a forum for the ideas and opinions of students and others.The learning laboratory aspect of the CPJ organization manifests itself by developing and maintaining effective and responsible managing of operations and finances of an endeavor (newspaper) organization, as well as dealing with such life challenges as organizing efforts to develop and maintain an inclusive organization, establishing a group culture of inclusive and responsible decision making, personal and collective accountability, leadership that focuses of fulfilling organization goals and objectives by fostering an environment of consensus and cooperation rather than focusing on the decision-making authority and responsibilities of leadership, confronting injustice and discrimination.

Evergreen Astronomical Society

The Astronomical Society at Evergreen is comprised of students, with interests ranging from old-fashioned, backyard star-gazing, to the scientific and mathematical. We will focus on not only the stars and wonders in the night sky, but the stories and myths that bring them to life. You do not need a telescope, binoculars or any special equipment to be a member. All that is required is a fascination with the unknown and a desire to learn more about the wonders of our universe. Our membership is composed of people from every walk of life, from the young, new beginners to the mature and experienced. We will form the bridge that brings amateur astronomers of all ages and backgrounds together, creating a society of habitual stargazers.
