I just arrived, met a few of the participants, grabbed lunch and checked into the dorm room I’ll be sharing with a not-yet-arrived co-attendee, so there’s not much to report on yet. What’s really on my mind – having just checked into a dormitory at Seattle University with water-saving toilets, extensive recycling facilities, and a compost bin in every room – is how much colleges have changed in their environmental actions in the 8 years since I’ve graduated. I’m wondering what other people have noticed, heard about and experienced.
Are you currently in college? How does your school attempt eco-friendliness while serving a large population? Are your college years past? Does your alma mater keep you informed about its environmental actions? Have you revisited the campus and seen any eco-footsteps in place? Share with us in the comments!
