Plants Committee


Plants Chair: Xiaoqian Yu

The Plants Committee cares for the 80+ plants around SP and helps involve SP residents in a bunch of healthy and green activities. Helping look after these plants will give you a true sense of belonging in SP. In addition to watering and caring for all of the plants throughout the building, the Plants Committee also helps organize the annual plants sale during Orientation to make residents give their rooms a more "home" feeling, and various events throughout the year, including fun trips to the Arnold Arboretum, fall foliage and others.
