Sustainable SEAS


Meet Connor

Meet Dor

Meet Dor Hirsh Bar Gai! He majors in Systems Engineering as well as Philosophy, and he was featured on for choosing to minor in Sustainability.

Also, let me introduce you to Connor Slye, who is also featured on the Sustainability website, and his major is in Civil Engineering.

At the moment, Dor and Connor are the only SEAS students representing on the website, but with the growing interest in the minor especially among Civil Engineering students, we hope to see more SEAS faces popping up very, very soon.

Are you interested in a minor in Sustainability? Check out or schedule an appointment with your professional advisors Myles and Hetal. Oh yeah, way to represent SEAS, Connor and Dor!

Modern Architecture + Design Open to All Majors

I know that some Civil Engineering students have an interest in architecture so I had to post this blog entry when I came across this summer course in the Modern Architecture and Design offered by the Interior Design Program. Sadly, this course does not count toward meeting your SEAS Humanities and Social Sciences requirement, but this does look pretty cool. Click the pic to e-mail the professor.
