Commons Unplugged Week has begun, several houses have their signature events coming up, and the fall trivia tournament is nearing. This is everything you need to know about the latest developments in the Commons Cup.
On Sunday, Commons Unplugged Week began. This portion of the competition, which runs through Saturday, focuses on sustainability. Each house’s goal is to decrease their energy consumption as much as possible during this week in order to score points for their house. There are also two events this week in which house participation will count towards points: Green Forum and Commons Gardening. On Wednesday night from 7-8PM, the Green Forum – which is a lecture about sustainability – will take place in the Commons Center Multipurpose Room. Gardening will take place on the Commons Center South Patio from 11AM-2PM on Saturday.
