Million Monitor Pledge Drive

The Million Monitor Pledge Drive is Smith’s response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s challenge to educational institutions nationwide to reduce energy use by setting computer monitors to a power-saving “sleep mode.”

Smith is competing in the drive against Amherst and Mount Holyoke colleges to sign up as many pledges as possible by November 22. Click here to set your computer and take the pledge. Prizes will be awarded to the college with the highest percentage of students signed up. Also, prizes will be given to the three residences at Smith with the highest percentage of pledges. And Clean Energy for Smith will get a reward if 75 percent of more of all students sign the pledge by Thanksgiving Break.

Smith College is currently leading the three-school Million Monitor Drive competition with more than 1,200 student pledges, 66 percent of its goal of 1800.

Park House has a slim lead in Smith's inter-house competition with almost 90 percent of its residents signed up. Hopkins comes in a close second with nearly 89 percent. Lawrence House comes in third with 63 percent.
