Our hope is to give students a breadth of experiences so they can more fully explore the environment and the ways it is affected by our society.
Students in this Living Learning Community have the unique opportunity to work with faculty, staff, and each other to create a vibrant, interesting, and fun community.
The Environmental Awareness Program is open to first-year and upperclass students of any major interested in living in a residence hall with other students and staff concerned about environmental issues. The programming in this community will support learning on current issues and how society affects our environment.
