|This winter break, let your office appliances take a break as well by using the downloadable checklist above to guide your shutdown preparations. Our actions add up. For example, the College of Liberal Arts will be unplugging their hallway electronic signboards for the break, avoiding over $53 in electricity costs. Imagine the savings if this effort was applied campus wide. We can be good stewards of our environmental and financial resources with your help.
To help lighten your step, please enjoy this year's version of 'Twas the Night Before Closure' which GT member Ned Balzer penned. We hope you find it a humorous reminder of some sustainable actions you can take before leaving for vacation.

'Twas the night before closure, and all through the hall,
Not a workstation buzzed, not a phone made a call
The coffee pots were unplugged in the kitchen with care,
With hopes that the electric current would not soon be there
The compact fluorescent was snug in its plug,
No current was flowing, it pooled with a shrug...
