Students Encouraging Environmental Dedication
Social & Service Club
About Our Organization
SEED seeks to encourage environmental respect, friendliness, and dedication through the appreciation of nature by educating members on current and local environmental issues. Moreover, SEED tries to serve as a voice for Marist students as an advocate for progressive sustainable development for the Marist College campus and the greater community at large.
It is our hope to instill and foster our member’s love for the environment through exposure to outdoor activities such as the fern tour, hiking, river clean-ups, apple picking, ice-skating, and more.

Meetings are not traditional due to the nature of our organization. Rather than weekly meetings, officers instead spend a great deal of time organizing events and initiatives for members and any student to attend or take part in. We host a general meeting, in the beginning, to introduce the board, explain SEED’s mission, discuss upcoming events/community service opportunities, explain how priority points work, and remark on positive current events happening in the environment.
Earn Priority Points through Clubs and Activities
To earn one (1) point: Members must attend a minimum of 50% of club/organization meetings for the semester and 50% of club/organization activities.
To earn two (2) points: Members must attend a minimum of 50% of club/organization meetings for the semester and 75% of club/organization activities PLUS the community service event.
To earn three (3) points (executive board only): Officers must attend 50% of club meetings for the semester and 100% of club activities including community service. If executive board members do not complete all of the requirements to earn three points, they will be eligible to receive up to two points based on the above criteria.
