The Pitt Green Resident & Floor program is an opportunity for any student and floor in Pitt-provided housing to demonstrate how they’re contributing to Pitt’s culture of sustainability.
First, students complete the Green Resident Certification survey to measure how their green practices stack up! If a student scores 50% of the points possible, they earn a Green Resident Certification. If half of a residence hall floor’s residents achieve Pitt Green Resident status, then the floor is designated a Pitt Green Floor!
Some habits that can contribute to a Pitt Green designation include:
- Turning the sink water off while brushing your teeth,
- Switching to reusable coffee cups,
- Turning off the lights in your room for an extra 15 minutes a day, and/or
- Choosing more plant-forward options.
The Fall 2019 semester was a success for the Green Resident program! By the end of the semester, 792 residents had participated from 63 floors!
442 residents (56%) achieved Green Resident status and 2 floors earned Pitt Green Floor designations. Congrats Sutherland East, Floor 3 and Litchfield Tower C, Floor 8!
Four residents earned a perfect score! We congratulate Sydney Smith and Kasey Verna from Sutherland Hall – West as well as Maggie Daluga and Brendan Mostek in Panther Hall.
