Cornell Student Assembly Discusses Sustainability, Course Enrollment and Online Forum

The Student Assembly addressed environmental sustainability, the transparency of course enrollment and “Big Red Change” — an online forum for students to create petitions about different University initiatives — at its meeting Thursday. The S.A. passed a resolution to convert all lighting in Willard Straight Memorial Hall from incandescent to LED. This change is an easy step that will save the University both money and energy, according to Gabriel Kaufman ’18. “We are actually sitting under about 300 incandescent light bulbs. What that means is that we are wasting a lot of electricity,” Kaufman said.
