MEDIA ADVISORY: NJIT Greeks Create “Gods” From Trash: See Exhibit Thru Friday

WHAT:     The NJIT fraternities and sororities kicked off their annual celebration of Greek Week themed “Clash of the Titans” with a competition to build a Greek God out of recycled and reused materials.  The “gods” are on display in the first floor of the Campus Center.  

WHEN:     Monday-Friday, April 29-May 1, 2010, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

WHERE:  NJIT Campus Center, at Bleeker and Summit streets, Newark.

WHY:  The Princeton Review’s Guide to 286 Green Colleges recently named NJIT one of the country’s most environmentally-responsible colleges.  NJIT students study fields--like engineering and architecture--that are closely allied to the environment.  They, in turn, grow increasingly interested in learning about better ways of living that can responsibly support the environment.

HOW:  Call Sheryl Weinstein, 973-596-3433, to set up interviews and see the gods.
