Living Learning Communities

Green Living Community

The Green Living Community offers students an opportunity to live among fellow students who want a more sustainable lifestyle. The community is governed by a council of students who help floor members to reduce their environmental impact, to find local volunteer opportunities, to host fun events, and to network with professionals in environmental professions. 

The Green Living Community is more than just a place to learn to live sustainable; it offers an opportunity for students to take what they learn and apply it to the greater community.

For Fall 2014 - Spring 2015, the Green Living Community will be located in Grant Tower D, 9th floor.

  • Invasive species removal
  • Carbon footprint monitoring
