Student Life

Student Life is here for you; our most basic task is helping students get the most out of their experiences at the university. With Student Life you can find your own niche on campus; connect with students within or beyond your residence hall, organization, or academic program; get involved in student organizations, leadership opportunities, and campus jobs and internships; and choose the housing and dining and living options that work best for you.

You Can Make A Difference, Too!

Every change you make, no matter how large or small, has an impact on our environment. Here are some small steps that can have a big effect.

 

ENERGY

  • Walk, bike or take a bus instead of driving.
  • Set your printer to double-sided default to save paper.
  • Look into sharing a printer with your housemates to reduce energy usage.
  • Use power strips and shut them off at night.
