Water Conservation
Testing rain-gauge sprinklers, utilizing motion-activating sinks, and installing low-flow faucets, showerheads, and toilets

Campus Ecosystem
Maintaining native plants in campus landscaping and composting food waste at the dining halls.

Expanding day-to-day recycling efforts by installing permanent outdoor recycling containers and establishing recycling programs for home football games
