Kelsie Marick, a student at Gonzaga University, sits at her desk in her dorm room Wednesday in Madonna Hall. Marick participated in an energy audit and contest by Avista last month that analyzed her energy use.

Because of the shortage of outlets in Marick’s dorm room, many items are plugged into power strips, which she turns off as a way of saving energy.
