Green Your Dorm Room

Author: Connor Kobeski


Jennifer Pepe and Tim Casper, two architecture graduate students who recently interned at the Notre Dame Office of Sustainability, have created an interactive, virtual Green Dorm Room. The room, created with 3D rendering techniques, is fully outfitted with everything a student needs to be sustainable, from a drying rack for clothes to a reusable water bottle.

“We had fun showing students that a green lifestyle is not just about driving hybrids or installing solar panels," said Tim Casper. "Being green starts with changes in our everyday activities that may seem small, but can really add up.” Students can pan around the room, zoom in and out on the various items, and mouse-over the “green” items to learn more.
