Join in Recyclemania and Campus Conservation Nationals Events on campus!  

Recyclemania is an eight-week long nation wide competition for schools to promote waste reduction activities to their campus communities. Throughout the competition, schools report trash and recycling data to see who maintains the highest recycling rate. 

Campus Conservation Nationals is the largest energy competition in the world!   Our dorms compete with other dorms nationwide to reduce energy. At the end of the three week competition period, the dorm that has reduced its electricity usage by the most will win a pizza party!

E-Waste Scavenger Hunt
Each day of the week, a different, used electronic device that will be painted green will be hidden on campus (five chances to win!). Look in the Daily Piper every day for the clue pertaining to the device. Winners will receive a coupon for a free smoothie from the Grille!

Get Caught Recycling
Recycle, recycle, recycle! The Recyclemania police will be stationed at undisclosed locations throughout the week to catch you recycling! Five people will be caught per day, giving you 25 chances to win! Those caught green-handed will be awarded a green prize!
