Dorm Storming

By Sustainability Interns | December 16, 2014

Recyclemania is coming to the campus next quarter and we have a few exciting activities planned. I am most excited about year two of Dorm Storming. This event encourages on-campus residence to improve their recycling habits and see firsthand how much they can recycle. For instance, residence at Aberdeen-Iverness (A-I) can compete for spirit points, against other halls, based on who can recycle more.

Student residence also have the opportunity to gain additional points by volunteering for the Office of Sustainability to promote sustainable and eco-friendly behavior changes in their halls. Also, after speaking with the president of A-I, who participated in last year’s Dorm Storming, he expressed much excitement about starting the competition as early as possible to make sure the recycling efforts can make an impact.

Dorm Storming gets student residence more involved and pumped up for the next event, a nationwide Tournament, 2015 Recyclemania. Dorm Storming will help increase UCR’s recycling numbers for Recyclemania and put us in the running for becoming one of the more sustainable campuses in the U.S.
