Each semester, students are encouraged to submit their own photographs portraying a different theme or element of student life. Open-ended themes allow students the freedom to create unique and personal entries.

History & Sustainability of the WCP

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a voluntary certification program that can be applied to any building type and any building lifecycle phase. It promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in key areas. Once a parking lot at the center of campus, and now a green hub of student life, the William C. Powers, Jr. Student Activity Center achieved the LEED Gold rating on April 29, 2012.
