The Housing and Residence Life Department launched the “Living Green & Gold” campaign in 2008 to help promote sustainable living on campus. Each year, this department asks all incoming students to buy only biodegradable or environmentally-friendly cleaning products for use in residence halls and on-campus apartments. A recycle-bin is included in all furnished rooms, and recycling pick-up is provided for all campus residents. Recently, the department added new conservation features such as energy-efficient lighting and low-flow toilets to all dormitories.
