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:

Students in the Agricultural Residential College (ARC) housed in Blake Hall are divided into 3 academic tracks: Animals, Environment/Sustainability, and Food, Fitness and Fashion. Each track is coordinated by at least one faculty member who develops and implement track specific programs and assignments throughout the academic year. In addition, all ARC students participate in at least one challenge: Fitness via America on the Move, Going Green, footprints scored via moodle, or Project TAM, designing a product from recycled tote bags.

The website URL where information about the themed housing is available:

It depends how ‘apply’ is defined. Students apply to live on campus at LSU and then on that application select the Ag Res College (ARC). They’re accepted into ARC if they’re an Ag major and we have space for them. It’s currently not a competitive process.
