Residence Halls

There are two sustainability-related programs for students in the Residence Halls.

Eco-Reps Program
Is open to first-year students living within East Halls on the University Park Campus who are interested in promoting environmentally responsible behavior. Eco-Reps encourage responsible energy usage in the fall and emphasize recycling and composting during the spring semester.  Eco-Reps work together to plan and implement enjoyable activities in their residence halls that inspire lifestyle changes. For more information on becoming an Eco-Rep, visit the link below.

Working closely with faculty from the College of Agricultural Sciences, residents take part in recycling efforts, visit organic farms, attend guest lectures, and participate in a variety of other educational experiences.
