Tri-Towers Energy and Water Challenge
About the Challenge
From October 3-31, the residents of Metcalf, Bowen and Carroll Residence Halls (known as the Tri-Towers) competed to see which hall could most reduce its energy and water use. The winning hall — Carroll — receives prizes, bragging rights and the winner’s plaque (which Bowen won in 2015).
