    Final exams, end-of-term research papers and group projects are stressful enough without having to worry about final exams, end-of-term research papers, and group projects. The Office of Sustainability is trying to make your week a little easier. Look for post-it notes on residence hall doors to serve as reminders with instructions for waste diversion. Outside each residence, designated areas will be set up for recycling, old carpets, e-waste, and food, linen and clothes donations.

    The Residence Energy Challenge is making a big impression across campus. Open to off-campus residents, the Challenge is a way for students to get involved with sustainability and learn how to save energy. The Housing Office is sponsoring the grand prize; winning residents choose from: a communal Nintendo Wii or PlayStation, tickets to a Giants game (10 tickets/ton CO2 avoided) or a donation of water filters to a Honduras village in the name of the winning building's residents. The winning off-campus house will be reimbursed for its electricity bills during the Challenge.
