As part of the campaign, signs were displayed throughout the residence halls and trash rooms to inform students about what can/can't be recycled through the institution's waste management company. Students in our sustainability educators program led multiple workshops that engaged those in attendance in an active get-out-of-your-seat activity. A pledge booth was also set up along with electronic marketing that incorporated Resident Advisors and students in an on-campus fashion club.
