Welcome to UNPLUG!


Throughout March, Residential Life wants you to find your DOT and Do One Thing while competing in the UNPLUG Energy Conservation Competition! This is the fifth annual UNPLUG competition among on-campus communities to see which community can reduce energy consumption the most.

UNPLUG seeks to promote an understanding throughout the LSU on-campus community of what energy conservation entails, by empowering students to take action in their daily lives. This is done by working to reduce the students’ own personal carbon footprint and, consequently, increase the university’s contribution to conservation of resources and energy efficiency.

Hosted by LSU Residential Life, Enactus (formerly Students in Free Enterprise), and LSU Campus Sustainability, UNPLUG pits 10 residential communities against one another to conserve energy and water for three weeks in March. Residents also are competing against 150 other schools through www.Competetoreduce.com.

Learn more details and the history of Unplug on the “What is Unplug?” page.

For now, here’s what YOU can do:

1. DO your one thing! Make small adjustments to your daily routines to save energy, recycle, reduce water and food waste or live better. Unplug your phone charger, turn off lights, take the stairs, or take shorter showers. Look for more tips throughout the competition!

2. Do One Thing & Tell The World!
Facebook Users:    Update your status with “I pledge to [insert your pledge here] for @competetoreduce @LSU for UNPLUG 2013!”
Twitter Users:  Tweet “getting excited to @competetoreduce @LSU for #unplugLSU2013. I pledge to [then insert your statement here]”
