The 2014-2015 Hoofprint Challenge will be starting soon!  Be on the look out for the kick off surveys. 

Last year, Campus Recreation began a campaign to bring awareness to behavior changes that can contribute to reducing carbon emissions. After calculating the total club sports emissions for competition travel for the 2013-2014 academic year, the total emissions equated 135 tons of carbon dioxide being emitted. In efforts to lower the total club sports emissions for 2014-2015, Campus Recreation engaged the entire campus by quantifying small, medium, and large impact behaviors and challenged students and staff to do enough to "offset" the emissions from club sports.

In order to take part in the challenge, all the participants need to do is review the list of actions on the surveys to the right and find an action they are able to maintain throughout the year. We divide these into four categories: Energy Saving, Waste Reduction, Water Conservation, and Miscellaneous Actions. By taking the survey and pledging, the participants will make a commitment to help make our campus a more sustainable one. Participants are able to re-visit the surveys as often as they would like to add something they did or commit to something they did not do at first but then decided to.
