Think of your sweater as a portable personal heater you don't plug in.
68° is the target thermostat setting in campus buildings. That can seem warm or cold, depending on the time of day, sunshine factor, your level of activity. Layering clothing is the recommended way to keep the thermostat steady, while staying comfortable throughout the day.
Sweater Days is most active during Winter Quarter. See News and Events for updates and ongoing programs. In the Pacific Northwest, layers are an all-season necessity. Wear your sweaters proudly all year long! Use these tools to conserve energy in your office and carbon emissions from campus.
