Albany State University has kicked-off their "Keep ASU Beautiful" Campaign. This campaign evolved from the annual ASU Go Green Week campus clean-up initiative. This initiative promotes a greener and cleaner environment on the campus and in surrounding areas. it will be used as a tool to increase environmental awareness and to maintain a sense of pride and responsibility we share for the environment.

Traditionally, 'stepping' is an African-American fraternity and sorority style of dance. For students at Albany State University, they're using stepping to take a step in a new direction, 'Stepping Towards Environmental Preservation'.
The ASU Greek community hosted the Carbon Step Challenge to bring awareness to climate change as it relates to the build-up of carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere. The organization provided guiding principles on how to reduce the earth's carbon emissions and replace them with green energy sources. All proceeds from the show will be donated to the March of Dimes.
