On February 22, the Princeton’s men’s and women’s basketball teams hosted Cornell in a thrilling double-header at Jadwin Gymnasium. The Tigers triumphed in both games, with the women’s team extending their impressive win streak to four games and the men’s team securing an important Ivy League win.

Over intersession in February, I traveled to Gettysburg College to attend an annual conference held by GreenAllies, an organization dedicated to empowering and supporting students to innovate and lead environmental sustainability efforts. The conference brings together students from across the region to meet and attend informational workshops designed to provide inspiration for on-campus projects.

The Princeton University Ecology Representative Program (EcoReps) was founded in 2004 and is hosted by the Office of Sustainability. The EcoReps support the mission of the Office of Sustainability by promoting the integration of Princeton’s sustainability goals into life on campus, with a focus on residential life; athletics; Move Out/In; Reunions and other events. Through their efforts, the EcoReps aim to increase sustainability awareness and behaviors among Princeton students.

Recyling at Reunions

More than 50 EcoReps teamed up to enhance recycling at Move Out and at Reunions 2016 for the seventh consecutive year. The students collected nearly 5,000 #5 and #6 cups at Reunions which were sent to be upcycled into products such as Adirondack chairs, toothbrushes, and other household items.
