College students often play the role of political activists. Promoting recycling on and off campus, fighting against rising tuition fees and hoping to help solve global issues are some of the ways students use their power as a group.
They are also often concerned with the environment and there are student groups on campus help to highlight that fact. One of them is the Environmental Student Society.
They are known for their campaigns around campus to promote a green lifestyle in student life.
They host their yearly clean-ups at the HP campus and in Morningside Park.
