A group of Wesleyans have gotten together to address two core priorities: sustainability and financial aid. Their idea is that students compete to save energy — turn off those lights and turn down the heat or a/c. The money on energy that the university saves by reducing our carbon footprint will be put in a special scholarship endowment so that more students in the future will have access to financial support (not loans). Pretty cool. Kate Weiner ’15 sent me a video that showcases their project.
You know why? This is Why.
