Environmental, Agricultural and Sustainability Education Academic Theme Program - The Environmental and Agricultural Sustainability Education Living- Learning Community is open to all students interested in local, regional, and global issues relating to the environment and agriculture. Students from all majors can benefit from examining these issues by participating in informal discussions through this program. Students have the opportunity to attend a variety of programs, activities and events that will explore issues related to the environment, agriculture and sustainability, which may include discussions, faculty panels, and career explorations. There are about 70-80 students in EASE.

The Tri-Cooperatives are one community, comprised of three craftsman-style houses on campus that place emphasis on low-impact living. The Tri-Coops give students the opportunity to experience communal living, gardening, and consensus based decision making. The Tri-Coop community as a whole emphasizes community, cooperation, and responsibility. There are a maximum of 36 residents living in the Tri-Cooperatives.
