I chose to attend Mount Union because of the small class sizes and the one-on-one attention students receive from professors. At the University, you aren’t just a number. Professors really care about you and your progress in and outside of the classroom. They also are really approachable and personable.
RecycleMania is a friendly competition among college and university recycling programs in North America and Canada. During 8 weeks each spring, schools compete to reduce waste, increase recycling and raise awareness of conservation issues across campus. Last year Mount Union placed 160th in the competition division. This year we’ll be holding an inter-dorm competition to see which dorm recycles the highest per capita rate.

Game Day Challenge
Out of the four Ohio schools participating, Mount Union placed first in the waste minimization category. All results can be found on the EPA's website.
The Recycle Sale is in conjunction with the Regula Center.
Tree Campus USA
Tree Campus USA program recognizes college and university campuses that effectively manage their campus trees, develop connectivity with the community beyond campus borders to foster healthy, urban forests and strive to engage their student population utilizing service learning opportunities centered on campus, and community, forestry efforts.
Colleges and universities across the United States can be recognized as a Tree Campus USA college by meeting five standards developed to promote healthy trees and student involvement. The five standards are: Campus Tree Advisory Committee, Campus Tree Care Plan, Campus Tree Program with Dedicated Annual Expenditures, Arbor Day Observance and Service Learning Projects.
This is a new program starting this year with a pilot project. Eco-reps are students who work to encourage sustainable living amongst their peers in their residences.
