The Live Green House is an exciting opportunity for students to live green and support sustainability at Puget Sound. Residents of the Live Green House will work closely with the Offices of Residence Life and Facilities Services to create a green living space and promote green initiatives on campus.
The purpose of the Live Green House is to show what students and the greater Tacoma community can do together to promote sustainability. Students will participate in multiple open houses throughout the school year and at times will be asked to help provide tours themselves.
