What are environmental studies?

Tufts’ student-run Environmental Consciousness Outreach (ECO) seeks to increase environmental awareness through both education and action. Partnering with the Office of Sustainability (OOS), ECO holds the program “Do it in the Dark” every fall to encourage Tufts students to turn off the lights and conserve energy. The contest aims to create competition among the various residence halls that will inspire students to save more energy than their classmates.
