Second Semester:

Build connections and host programs

 During the Spring Semester, Eco team members will host an Energy Challenge in residence halls. We plan fun events and outreach projects that engage our peers while practicing the skills we learned together in the fall. 

Also during the spring semester, the Eco team will go out into the Westminster community and share their newly-acquired knowledge. The team members will create their own niche in the campus and have a more active role in the institution. 

Design and create change

 Eco team members will connect and participate in Earth Day celebrations, as well as design their own personal projects. We focus on understanding and developing each team member’s unique skills through career and resume workshops, reflection, and guest speakers.
