Ed Below (left), director of administrative applications for Finance and Administration; and John Meerts (right), vice president for Finance and Administration, congratulate Gabriel Fries ’09 (center), for his winning Project $AVE idea Sept. 21. Through the Project $AVE Web site, Fries suggested that “students who work on campus and have direct deposit should not have notices of their electronic payment sent to them via mail. Instead, they should be e-mailed or there should be a Website where students can keep track of each week’s earnings and their earnings year-to-date. This would save money because Wesleyan wouldn’t need to print up all the notices about electronic payment. It would also save paper.”

Film major Fries, a work-study student who has part-time jobs at Olin Library, Instructional Media Services and the Center for Film Studies/Film Series, says he has a concern for the environment and the energy crisis.

Below and Meerts presented Fries with an iPod Nano for his suggestion, which is being implemented for all student workers, faculty and staff. His idea was selected as the winner from more than 170 energy-saving suggestions through Project $AVE. (Photo by Olivia Bartlett)
