STU Sustainability hosted a Paint-a-Pot and Plant Sale on Nov. 4 in Sir James Dunn Hall, which acted as a fundraiser for the society. Students looking to grow their indoor plant collection got a chance to browse the plants and paint their own pots.
The Aquinian’s photo editor, Daniel Salas, stopped by the event and this is what he saw.
