"Together, we strive to be a center for environmental awareness, education, and innovation on campus. In addition, we are always looking for new and different ways to carry out our daily activities in order to reduce our footprint and live together more cohesively."
The Synergy Program consists of two houses, located on the east side of campus, for students who are passionate about sustainability and wish to challenge themselves to live intentionally in order to reduce their impact on the planet.

Operated solely by residents of Synergy House, the Synergy House Garden produces a variety of vegetables, determined by the tastes and interests of the residents. As Synergy residents are not on a meal plan, producing their own food allows them to supplement their diet and examine an important aspect of living sustainably.
