Ecology House

Welcome to the Ecology House! This is a diverse community of aspiring engineers, veterinarians, doctors, architects, biologists, chemists, programmers, lawyers, researchers, and so much more. Despite the variety of backgrounds and majors, everyone is connected by one concern: the environment needs our help. The Ecology House teaches each student how to begin to change the world, even in the smallest of ways. The House staff starts by introducing students to living sustainably. Everyone learns how to compost, recycle, and promote energy efficiency. In addition, students are given the chance to partake in a wide variety of environmental and outdoor leadership positions, ranging from being a committee leader within the house to an Eco representative at campus-wide events. At Eco, you will always have the chance to express yourself and bring new ideas to the house table (or kitchen). Eco House has a dynamic environment, improved daily by the thoughts and actions of every resident and staff member.

Pet of the Summer!

Pet name: Fitzgerald

Owner: Adam, Eco's great Building Care worker

Age: 4 months old

Favorite Activities: Nibbling on resident shirt sleeves, BAAing when the room feels too quiet, reading Harry Potter fanfiction, and long walks on the beach while his ears blow gently in the sea breeze

Fun Facts: One of Fitzgerald's ears froze over the winter and that's why it has a little crimp in the end. He also loves hanging out with Eco residents - he's a lap goat!
