Going Green - Rivarlry Style

Always glad to see my alma mater in the news for good reasons (not that there are any bad ones that I can think of).

From the Sunday Des Moines Register:

The longtime rivalry between Luther College and Wartburg College has taken a turn for the greener.

Pranksters traditionally make 75-mile road trips between Decorah and Waverly to dress campus statues in opposition colors. Now they have been joined by eco-conscious students in a month-long competition to see which school can conserve more energy and lower campus utility bills.

Strategies have included shorter showers, turned-off lights and unplugged cell phone chargers.

Well done, Norse (and Knights)! Dowling and Valley will be next, mark my words.
