The Green Dorm Initiative (GDI) is the annual competition that encourages Rice students, staff, faculty, and administrators to adopt sustainable lifestyles and to then implement them on campus. Held during Feburary, GDI is a two-week event hosted by the Rice University EcoReps that targets different green topics around campus every day. Competitors can participate in as many days as they like, but the more days they participate, the more prizes they will win!
Each day students will recieve an email with information about a daily topic, along with challenges and events they can attend. At the end of each week, students wil complete a survey with questions related to the week's topics, along with questions about the challenges and events. Answering these questions earns entry for small prizes, and earns points towards winning big individual prizes for you, and a college wide prize for the college that participates the most!
