2018 Events

Commuter Challenge (Sept 24 – Oct 5)

Avoid the car! For two weeks, challenge yourself to travel to and from the campus using sustainable transport such as public transit, walking, or biking. Need some inspiration? Recently, Nicole Guyett in the School of Global Access has been walking 24 km home from the college twice a week, to raise money for kidney disease. Register and track your commute to be an inspirational commuter!
