The Office for Sustainability, Student Sustainability Council and Residence Hall Association hosted a two-week residence hall energy reduction competition from Halloween through Nov. 14. Residence halls on Northside, Southside and The Village at 115th (including the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Residence Hall) competed to reduce their energy consumption.
The Village and Stephanie Tubbs Jones Residence Hall won by reducing their energy usage 7 percent from baseline. Northside reduced consumption 4 percent and Southside saw a 3.5 percent reduction.
An outdoor, unplugged party will be held for the winning cluster today (Nov. 18) from 6 to 8 p.m. in the courtyard between Houses 2 and 3 at the Village to honor and celebrate their victory.
The party will include a campfire and cookout, complete with s’mores and hot dogs (and veggie dogs). Free CWRU “unplugged” long-sleeved tees will be given out to the first 250 energy champions from the winning residence halls.
