We have completed our goal of depleting club sports emissions from 2012-2013! Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Hoof print challenge!

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 2012-2013 academic year, the total emissions equated 263 tons of carbon dioxide being emitted. In efforts to lower the total club sports emissions for 2013-2014, 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 needed to do is review the list of actions on the surveys to the right and find an action they were able to maintain throughout the year. We divided these into four categories: Energy Saving, Waste Reduction, Water Conservation, and Miscellaneous Actions. By taking the survey and pledge, the participants made a commitment to help make our campus a more sustainable one. Participants were 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.
