Student Eco Reps

Through the Eco Rep program, students serve as green leaders in their residence halls and across campus. Eco Reps help with Eco-Challenge, Recyclemania, Green Moveout, e-cycling on campus, Earth Hour, and Earth Month. Eco Reps are a valuable resource for GW, in disseminating the message to "go green" across campus, particularly among students and student groups.
