Welcome to the Royal Agricultural University (RAU) Student Switch Off campaign – your chance to win prizes for yourself and a big delivery of Domino’s pizza for your hall, all for doing easy things to help the environment!
Pizza for my hall
Yep! All the halls are competing to see who can be the best energy-savers. At the end of the year the hall that have been the greenest will receive a big delivery of Domino’s pizza – and we’ll even chuck in a couple of crates of beer.
The halls competing against each other are:
Main Building and George Wing
Bledisloe Houses – ABC
Bledisloe Houses – DEF
New Build 1
New Build 2
Vic Hughes A
Vic Hughes B
Coad Court Rooms 301-327
Coad Court Rooms 328-353
But what if I’m in an older building?
You’re only being compared against previous students in your building and the data will be weighted to compensate for things like changes in weather. The final comparison will therefore be ‘like for like’ between all buildings.
Interesting, how can I win stuff?
As well as the communal prize, we’ve got loads of great prizes to give out at the individual level in our photo competitions, like more Ben & Jerry’s (big tubs!) and NUS Extra cards. These run once every 2-3 weeks and usually involve uploading a picture of yourself saving energy onto the Facebook page. It really is as simple as that!! There are lots of other competitions as well so make get on the email list and like the Facebook page so you don’t miss out.
