Energy Civil War

Get active and help Oregon State beat Oregon by participating in the 2012 Energy Civil War!

From Nov. 14-21 leading up to the Civil War football game, students at each school will compete to conserve and create their own energy. Dixon Recreation Center will put 10 of its ReRev cardio machines up against 10 of Oregon's to see which school can generate the most!

There are several ways to get involved.

The easiest way to participate is to stop in Dixon Recreation Center and use one of the ReRev cardio machines marked with an Energy Civil War logo (pictured to the left). Your entire workout will contribute to OSU's score!

Organizations and clubs on campus can get involved as well by adopting a machine. Contact OSU's Student Sustainability Initiative if interested (e-mail SSI).

Visit the Energy Civil War blog and check out RecSports' Facebook page and the Student Sustainability Initiative's Facebook page for a chance to win a variety of prizes by joining in the sustainability discussion throughout the week!

And most importantly, plan to get active and help OSU beat Oregon! This is a fun, healthy and competitive event that contributes to good lifestyles and community enhancement.
