Dish Rescue!

Led by the Dish Rescue Action Team (DRAT!) superheroes will be flying around campus to find dishes and return them to the dining halls. We ask that people take dishes out of their rooms and put them outside their doors or in commons spaces so that we can pick them up.

Turn off your lights and other electronic devices and head over to Proctor terrace for games and acoustic music (weather permitting). Earth Hour is completely voluntary, but makes a huge difference. When a lot of people do it, we save a lot of energy!
