Reynolda Hall 101


Oh, the Places You’ll Go…and the Things You’ll Learn

What do drones, coral reefs in Belize, backpacking across Alaska and exploring the Peruvian Amazon have in common? They’re all part of the environmental program here at Wake Forest, where the world is your classroom. Explore to learn about our many research opportunities and brand new majors in Environment and Sustainability.

And the Learning Doesn’t Stop There

Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell, author and naturalist Terry Tempest Williams and environmental activist Vandana Shiva are just a few of the world-renowned speakers the Office of Sustainability has brought to campus. In addition to keynote speakers, the Office of Sustainability hosts an annual Earth Week celebration to inspire action through service projects, tree plantings and celebrations.

Stop by Reynolda Hall 101 to learn about ways to get involved in campus sustainability.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We’ve stocked your rooms with personal recycling totes; centralized sorting stations are located on each hall. Reduce waste by filling up your reusable water bottle at any of more than 200 bottle refill stations across campus. We’ve got you covered behind the scenes with a composting program in the dining halls and at all major events. Learn more at
