Move-In Green

Move-In Green is Penn’s move-in engagement program dedicated to environmental sustainability. The program gives upperclassmen leaders the opportunity engage new and returning students on environmental initiatives around campus.

Volunteers will help staff outreach tables during the three days of move-in, assist with recycling in the College Houses, and partner with NSO events to promote sustainability.
