     “Make everyday Earth Day,” said environmental club vice president Jessica Druze, an 18-year-old, second-semester, environmental science major from Howell.
     April 22 was Earth Day, and a campus-wide cleanup was in action.  
     Many clubs participated in this event, but the environmental club and the C.A.T.S. club headed the clean up.  As the former president of the environmental club here at Brookdale, I am very proud that the club has become such a big sensation on campus.
     “It’s up to us to make a change and be the difference in making the Earth better,” said environmental club president Dan “Chester” Correa, a 20-year-old, fourth-semester, environmental major from Old Bridge.  Correa is also a member of the C.A.T.S. club on campus. 
     The event was a success.  The turnout has been one of the highest turnouts for the campus clean up in recent memory.
     “Participation has grown for this event year in and year out, we are happy with the turnout,” said Tim Macaluso, a science teacher here at Brookdale and adviser for the environmental club.  “It’s great that we are cleaning up the campus and teaching the students to keep their school clean.”
     Though we are still trying to get students to keep the campus clean, as they seem to litter everywhere.  The students should try to keep their campus clean because they spend a lot of time here and it’s disgusting to trash the place they go to school.
     “People are dirty in general,” said Owen Daly, a 25-year-old, fifth-semester, communications major from Oakhurst
     People are dirty and they must have never been taught respect from their parents.  They really should have respect for the campus that they go to school at. 
     Overall, students seem to have had a great time helping out with the event. 
     “It’s a great turnout for this event,” said Hannah Sisti, a 18-year-old, second-semester biology major from Spring Lake.  “It’s a great day to wear tie dye.”
     Keep in the spirit and continue cleaning.  Earth day may just come once a year, but the Earth needs help everyday.
