The Students for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (SETA) hosted "Veganize Your Dorm," where they gave away vegan and cruelty-free skincare samples. on Thursday, Oct. 3.

Members of the Student for the Ethical Treatment of Animals answered questions from students about living a vegan lifestyle on campus, while handing out vegan skincare products such as moisturizers and cleaners.

"[Companies] are most of the time very excited to help us out or send us some products," sophomore kinesiology major and president of SETA Maya Greenbaum said.

SETA is part of the Humane League's Student Alliance for Animals, which partners with student activist organizations across the country to raise awareness and end the abuse of animals. Although they have similar names, SETA is unaffiliated with PETA. Greenbaum said the name was chosen because they believe in the message that PETA puts forth, and also as a play on words.

In addition to giving away vegan products, SETA also hosts events to promote veganism as a lifestyle as well as to bring awareness to animal cruelty.

"We'll have some Cubes of Truth, which is showing slaughterhouse footage to people," Greenbaum said. According to Greenbaum, they also organize demonstrations.

SETA hosts vegan potlucks as a way of engaging students. According to sophomore math major and treasurer Justin Slud, potlucks are a "great" way to engage the vegan community on campus.

"At the First Look Fair, there's a lot of people that put their name down because their vegan or interested," Slud said, "So we had a potluck last week to meet some of those people and get to kind of have that community."

"We are hoping to bring [students in] and form more of a tight knit community," Greenbaum said.
