On-campus residents who want to help Georgia Tech be more energy efficient have the opportuntiy to help the Institute "Flip the Switch" in the Campus Conservation Nationals competition.
Tech will compete against more than 100 other colleges and universities in this energy and water conservation competition. Building Captains are needed from each campus dormitory to help Tech achieve the greatest energy and water reduction levels in its residence halls.
Spring is finally here – temperatures are rising, flowers are blooming and students are itching to spend their time outdoors. However, campus has undergone many changes during the past year, limiting recreational use in some areas.
Don’t be discouraged – the “Please Keep off the Grass” signs are coming down soon, and there are still plenty of ideal locations for a game of Frisbee, sunbathing, reading and soaking up good conversation and sunlight with friends.
With sustainable living becoming a more common concern in homes throughout the country, many people are doing what they can to live greener. However, two recent Georgia Tech graduates are taking these ideas further, thinking big to create ways for major companies to reduce their energy consumption.
