Do it in the Dark Energy Conservation Competition Gears up in November! 

Each fall semester Residence Services hosts the annual “Do it in the Dark” energy reduction competition, putting residence hall vs. residence hall in a battle to reduce electricity over a two week period of time. Step up your efforts to reduce your electricity usage and help your hall win $200 toward your Hall Council funds!

This year, Do it in the Dark will take place from November 2-15, 2014 on the Kent campus. New this year, each hall will be able to view the status of their halls electricity usage by checking the Utility Dashboard online by clinking on the Utility Dashboard link above.
