The following is an update from Marvin Cruz, the Assistant Director of Development for Residential Living
This summer, our full-time and student staff conducted room audits in every Lobo Village room and reset the limiters on all thermostats. This new limiter will offer freedom and comfort to all students while reducing our energy consumption as a campus. It’s one small step we’re taking to show that Res Life is heading in a more sustainable direction.

Students check out the new water bottle filling stations in the Gallego Center.
In an effort to foster conservation of natural resources, Sul Ross State University has recently taken measures with the installation of two water bottle filling stations.
The filling stations, which include the installation of two more units in September, are part of an overall plan to improve campus sustainability.
“These water filling stations are part of a pilot program we’re implementing in response to sustainability issues that were raised,” said Jesse Lara, Assistant Director of the Physical Plant.
Lara added that two units are currently up and running in the lower levels of the Pete P. Gallego Center and the Recreational Sports Center (RSC).
Two additional stations are scheduled to be installed on the second level at RSC and the lower level at Lawrence Hall in September.
Lara said each unit will incorporate a filtration system that will help purify and improve the taste of the water.
“Each station will also have a counter in the top-right corner so every time it’s used it will display how many bottles are saved,” Lara said.
