From February 6th to March 30th, Eco Reps will be hosting a friendly competition, known as RecycleMania. Over this 8-week period, various colleges across the United States and Canada will compete to see who can reduce and recycle the most.
Each school will report the amount of recycling and trash they collect each week. The results that are collected will be ranked in various categories: which school recycles the most on a per capita basis, which school has the best recycling rate as a percentage of total waste, and which school generates the least amount of combined trash and recycling. Participants can track the progress of their campus and use the results to rally their peers to reduce and recycle more!
Each week the Lehigh University Eco Reps will be hosting various campus wide and residential events to encourage students to participate in RecycleMania. For example, Week 1 involved a photo contest. Students were asked to post a creative/fun picture of themselves recycling a water bottle for a chance to win a reusable water bottle.
RecycleMania is a fun and easy way to help improve the environmental friendliness of our campus. So go out there, show your Lehigh pride, and go green!
Do not forget to join the “Lehigh University RecycleMania” Facebook page to stay updated on weekly events!

Welcome back, Lehigh ladies! I’m sure we can all agree that first semester definitely flew by. After a nice long winter break filled with catching up on some much-needed sleep and relaxing, the last thing on your mind, I’m sure, is schoolwork. But, I am going to share some helpful tips to make sure that you can easily get back into the swing of things. Get textbooks for cheap.
Most college courses require that all students buy certain textbooks and other supplies. Since every student is enrolled in multiple courses, the costs of each can definitely add up. Instead of buying your books from the campus bookstore for high prices, there are other more budget-friendly options for you to consider. First, ask around to see if anyone has an old textbook that they would be willing to sell you for a discounted price. You can check different Facebook groups to see if anyone has posted offers. Second, go to Amazon.com. I can almost guarantee that you will find the textbook you are looking for here, and for very reduced prices. Keep in mind that saving some money now can help you out in the long run!

Halloween is a college girl’s favorite holiday. We have the freedom to go a little crazy and dress up in whatever absurd costume we want, free of judgments. Or, as the movie “Mean Girls” puts it, “Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” For whatever the reason may be, us college girls love dressing up for Halloween.At Lehigh, and at many college campuses, Halloween takes on a new identity…Halloweek. Halloweek is an extended celebration of Halloween which takes place during the days leaving up to the 31st. Halloweek, therefore, requires not one, but several equally awesome costumes. Since everyone is bored of seeing the same bunny and cat costumes year after year, here are some unique ideas so you are sure to have an original costume.
1. Alien: if you want to have a costume that really stands out, try being an alien. All you need for this outfit is a metallic skirt, white or silver shiny top, silver accessories, head boppers, and lots of sequins. Add some cool, sparkly makeup and you’ll be sure to look out of this world (literally)!
2. Ballerina: if you need a costume that is easy to put together last minute, being a ballerina is the perfect option. For this costume you’ll need to wear a tight shirt, bodysuit, or dress with a tutu and some tights. Pull your hair up into a tight bun and you’ll instantly look like a professional ballerina!
