Does the institution have sustainability-themed housing (residential floor or hall, or theme house) where residents learn about sustainability together and to which residents must apply?:

A brief description of the themed housing:

Agnes Scott has recently established an "Eco-house" themed residence. Students are currently applying to live in the house beginning in the summer of 2012. The house provides Agnes Scott and the surrounding Decatur community with an environmentally friendly residence facility, and promotes an opportunity for educating students, faculty, staff and community members about sustainable living. This house encompasses the objective of sustainable living by incorporating the three E’s of sustainability: environment, economy, and equity. The three E’s will help create goals for residents living in this house to experience sustainable living in the best ways possible through educational experiences and actions towards conservation. The Eco House helps to spread awareness about environmental concerns and to educate the rest of the campus about ways to live more efficiently and become more conscious about how their choices affect the world. This house embodies the ideas of sustainability on campus through example.
