For a brief moment on the afternoon of Thursday, April 4, the hallways of Latham Hall were dark.

Students from Sigma Gamma Epsilon (SGE), a student group that provides Earth Sciences programming on campus,  gathered their members and invited helpers to replace the ceiling lights to a more energy efficient model.

The switch from fluorescent to LED bulbs took roughly one hour with the help of 35 volunteers. 

According to SGE, the new LED bulbs offer both financial and environmental benefits to the building by saving on energy use and overall utilities costs. 

With support from UNI’s Green Fund, the organization was able to bring the campus one step closer to a green-friendly and sustainable institution. 

For anyone who would like to pursue a project that promotes sustainable practices at UNI, the Green Fund is accepting applications.
