Beginning on Feb. 15 and ending on April 15, the campus’ consumption of water, heat and electricity will be recorded, respectively and compared to a 3-year average that has been previously calculated.
Student Government will take the difference between the two numbers and render a monetary savings for the campus. On the more practical side, here’s what you can do:
Turn up the thermostat in your fridge.
Shorten your shower by one or two minutes. You will save up to 150 gallons a month.
Turn off the lights whenever you leave the room, even if it’s just to walk down the hall.
Turn off your computer at night and between classes.
Make sure any appliance with a clock or standby setting is unplugged during the day, like your CD player, cell phone charger or TV.
Unplug your gaming system during the day.
