Get Involved! 

Aquinas College offers countless opportunities to learn about sustainability and the basics of living a sustainable lifestyle. Below are just a few of our sustainability initiatives. #BeaSustainableSaint

Urban Forest Initiative
Help us improve the health of the Aquinas College woodlands by removing invasive species, planting trees, and more. 

Re-Think Transportation
Learn how to use the Grand Rapids bus system, view routes from AQ to popular destinations in the city, learn about bike rental programs and much more.students volunteering

Volunteer in the summer for our AQ community garden! Come on out to the garden located east of the AMC to help with planting day, harvesting day, or become a regular volunteer! If interested, please contact Jessica Eimer Bowen.
Green Revolving Fund
Learn about or submit a proposal to our Green Revolving Fund, a sustainable investment mechanism that helps us complete energy-reducing projects on-campus.

Our campus tree guide is available online! Visit this website for a full list of tree species on campus. Each tree has a description and is part of an interactive map that makes it easy to find whatever species you're looking for.
