On April 15, Michigan State University installed a solar-powered picnic table in the South Campus Courtyard, providing students with a sustainable location to charge electronic devices.

The installation of the solar-powered table was championed by the student group known as the Sustainable Spartans, who received funding from MSU Sustainability to finance the project.

In celebration of their achievement, the Sustainable Spartans held an Environmental Gala at the Wonders Kiva, which included several guest speakers, refreshments, a photo shoot and a ribbon cutting ceremony.
