At OSU, we have been celebrating Earth Day ever since the first one in 1970. But we’re too hardcore for just one day of observance of this amazing planet we live on, so we celebrate for a full week! Hence: Earth Week, a week of fun and educational activities geared toward raising environmental awareness and engagement.
