Are you an OSU student living in a residence hall, or do you plan to live in one next year? Are you interested in getting involved in sustainability at OSU and working with a cohort of peers to develop great leadership skills? Then look no further than the OSU Eco-Representative program!
Eco-Reps began at Oregon State in fall 2012, helping move the OSU campus and student experience forward with sustainability content and programming. Starting with three positions in 2012-2013 and now eight positions for 2019-2020, the program today reaches more residents than ever before!
Eco-Reps are responsible for encouraging a culture of sustainability in the residence halls in which they live. They educate residents about sustainable lifestyles and resources, assist with marketing and outreach, and plan and execute sustainability-focused events. They also maintain their hall's composting program. In 2018-2019, the Eco-Reps reached people an amazing 9,785 times and composted over 1,741 lbs. of material!
