Environmental non-profit Reverb is proud to announce that the Campus Consciousness Tour Spring 2012 will feature J. Cole, The Sideline Story Tour, with special guest Big K.R.I.T. The Tour aims to educate and mobilize students to take positive action for the planet, while keeping the environmental footprint of the tour itself to a minimum.
At the concert, students will be able to register to vote, learn how they can take action for a healthy planet, get the dough out of politics, and go plastic-free!
In addition, during the day of the show students can visit the Reverb Eco-Village on the quad for free fun and social action, including live music from singer-songwriter Pete Kilpatrick, free ice cream, games, prizes and more.

Students can also learn how to help reduce plastic water bottle waste on their campuses by participating in the Hydrate U program.
