Evening events take place in the President's Dining Room of the Bernhard Center. Fall refreshments will be available.

- 6 p.m.—Presentation of student sustainability projects and panel discussion of sustainability efforts in departments across campus.
- 7 p.m.—Screening of "Fresh," a film that celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system.
