"I discovered that all over the country, and all over the world, there are people who value nature and who really believe we can save the world. It gave me a new perspective; it showed me people are small, but the differences they can make are big!"  
— Sarah, Sc3 participant, 2015

    Ocean Acidification: Protecting The Coral Reef
    As the twenty-first century continues on, the effects of climate change drastically alter the planet’s conditions, making it less habitable. Polluting the air with more emissions furthers the greenhouse effect that heats up the planet. While a majority of the greenhouse gases that are released stay in the air to continue the greenhouse effect, a large chunk of these gases, approximately twenty-six percent of emissions each year, are absorbed by the oceans. Ocean life has existed for a much longer period than human life, and roughly seventy-one percent of the earth's surface is covered with water. However, in our world today, scientists are in agreement that we are amidst a sixth mass extinction whose cause is anthropogenic. Meaning that humans are the cause and catalyst for the environmental destruction, extinction of wildlife, and loss of biodiversity that is occurring across the globe.       more

    “Bring Our Boys Home”: The Theft of Dining Hall Dishes and the Environmental Implications
    Each fall, Kenyon College’s sole dining hall, Peirce Hall, has a full stock of bowls, dishes, cutlery, and most notably, Peirce cups.

During orientation, upperclassmen beg the freshmen not to thieve the cups during a spirited series of skits, and clubs on campus sell buttons that read “bring our boys home” with a picture of the famous red cup, in the early days of the spring semester. Despite these efforts, at the same point each year-- around mid-April-- there are just not enough cups to go around. more
