Water is one of Minnesota’s most valuable natural resources, and the most refreshing one to drink. Graduate student Bailey Tangen volunteered as a “bartender” at the Water Bar during Welcome Week, an event for new students. Students had the opportunity to taste both groundwater and surface water, as well as learn about equitable water access. “We sparked the conversation but then sat back to listen to students and let them discover their own relationship to water,” said Tangen. Learn more about the Water Bar project
