Fall Meet & Greet


In early October, members of the Bulldog Sustainability team hosted a fall Green Team Certification Meet & Greet event. Green Team Certification is a sustainability competition among athletic teams organized by Bulldog Sustainability. At the Meet & Greet, athletes in participating teams had the opportunity to ask questions, share ideas, and provide feedback on the Green Team Certification competition. Additionally, the Meet & Greet was extended to club athletes and attendees could vote on slogans for this year’s Harvard Yale campaign. Thank you to the student athletes who joined us at the Meet & Greet!
