NY Negawatt Winners

Congratulations to Hobart and William Smith for winning the interschool competition with a 5.2% reduction, a savings of 13,908 kwh! St. Lawrence as a campus did very poorly in the NY Negawatt competition (increasing electricity 0.9% usage over baseline period), that said congratulations are in order for the residence halls and theme houses that achieved significant reductions in electricity use:

Residence Halls:
1st place goes to Priest Hall with a 10.7% reduction and savings of 474 kwh
a close 2nd place goes to 48 Park with a 10.3% reduction and savings of 153 kwh

Theme Houses:
1st place goes to 58 Park (OC) with a 21.6% reduction and savings of 439 kwh
a close 2nd place goes to 54 Park (La Casa Latina) with a 21.3% reduction and savings of 137 kwh

Our first place winners will receive a pub cookie for each resident after Thanksgiving break.

Bike FixIt Stations on Campus

Tire low on air?  Seat in the wrong position?

Regrettably there is not a shop for either bike repair or rental in Canton, but thanks to funding provided by an innovation grant, St. Lawrence was able to install two self-contained outdoor repair stands (Dero Fixits).

The Fixits include a pump and a full complement of basic tools while doubling as a bike stand. They are located in two high traffic areas: at athletics under the front covered entrance to Augsbury and near Madill, the science library where Green Bikes are rented.  We are excited that these stations place the tools needed to make simple repairs at accessible locations for all riders at all times.

Tools can also be borrowed from the info desk at the Student Center.

If you have questions or notice damage to a Fixit station please contact Louise Gava, our Sustainability Coordinator.
