BIG congratulations to Notre Dame’s Lacrosse Team. Our Gators are the Colonial States Athletic Conference Champions.

The Gators held strong, keeping the game close in the first half, but Westminster stepped it up and ended up defeating NDMU 16-8.
NDMU finished the season 11-6 overall and 7-3 in Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC). This was the Gators first CSAC Championship and NCAA lacrosse appearance.

New Trees on Campus
You may have noticed some new scenery around campus recently. TriBeta (or TreeBeta as it is affectionately known) held three events this semester designed to beautify NDMU’s campus.
The first two events were geared towards tree maintenance, where trees previously planted by TreeBeta are re-mulched, re-fertilized and pruned. Mother nature didn’t cooperate for the first event and it was a soggy mess, but students prevailed. The weather was much better for the second maintenance event and a lot was accomplished.
As for the third TreeBeta event, students worked with grounds supervisor Kelly Harrison to plant four new trees next to Loop Road, as it passes in front of Doyle Hall. To see more pictures go to NDMU's Flickr page.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
NDMU Facilities in conjunction with The Planeteers, NDMU’s student environmental group is beginning a refocused effort on enhancing the school’s recycling program.
- Recycling will be picked up weekly from recycling containers. Only recyclable items are to be placed in these bins.
- If you have cardboard for recycling, please break it down and place it next to the recycling containers.
- Recycling pick-up will take place on Wednesdays (afternoon/evening) and Saturdays only.
In an effort to educate the campus about what can, and cannot be recycled, The Planeteers have been putting up posters around campus.
Among the most common items than cannot be recycled:
- Plastic bags
- Paper napkins, plates, tissues
- Foam cups and to-go containers
Any recycling bins found with trash in them will cause the entire bin to be considered as trash, and discarded as such. All non-recycling items will continue to be collected as normal and taken to the trash compactor.
If you have any questions email Aisha Azhar, Planeteers president.
