Water bottle filling stationThe Admissions staff is enamored with two relatively new additions to our building.

They’re water bottle filling stations!

Okay, maybe that doesn’t sound very exciting to you, but these stations are part of the School’s efforts toward sustainability.

In public health, we’re taught that bottled water is expensive, terrible for the environment and not better for you. Filling stations like these make cold, filtered tap water more convenient and easier to access than bottled water.

All you need is your own reusable container!

The current filling stations are on the second floor, across from the lavatories near the coffee shop and on the sixth floor, about halfway down the inner, east hall.

Rumor has it more are on their way.

William Welch plaqueDo you know where this is?

More importantly, do you know who this is?

It’s William Henry Welch, a founder of the Bloomberg School and leader in public health. He was called “Popsy” by his friends and students and “our greatest statesman in the field of public health” by President Hoover.

You can learn more about Dr. Welch and his many accomplishments under Heroes of Public Health.

The plaque is located just inside the Wolfe Street entrance to the School of Public Health.
