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, including name(s) and descriptions of theme(s):

The Environmental Awareness Program is open to first-year and upperclass students of any major interested in living in a residence hall with other students and staff concerned about environmental issues. The programming in this living learning community will support learning on current issues and how society affects our environment.
Living learning communities are purposeful attempts to integrate curricular and co-curricular experiences that complement and extend classroom learning. These communities foster faculty and resident interaction that enhances both intellectual and personal growth of the residents. In addition, we offer theme learning communities where each community is built around a specific field of study or area of interest and is structured so students have a high degree of involvement in its formation.
