Foreign Students’ Butts

Have you seen the southwest corner of Santa Barbara and Figueroa lately? The students from ELC (Education Language Center) hang out there daily to smoke. Not only do they leave their butts on the ground, but they frequently leave additional trash. The center claims to supply a trash can, but I don’t think the students know what it’s for. Maybe a trash pickup at the beach would be a good learning tool or some info about the Pacific Gyre.
