Below, you will find photos and details about sustainability-focused projects and initiatives throughout the campus.

Using a bicycle in place of a car for your daily commute can save approximately 3,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions annually. Consider biking to campus, or a combination of public transportation and biking, and park your bike at one of several bike racks throughout campus.

Did you know using a refillable water bottle can save 156 plastic bottles each year? Remember to bring your reusable bottle to campus and refill it instead of buying bottled water.

After reducing your consumption of materials and reusing items whenever possible, recycling is your next best sustainable option. Please recycle items by placing them in the appropriate bins on campus.

If you need to find your way around campus, the newly-installed solar panel at this wayfinding sign will show you the light, through solar power!
