Green Campus Initiatives
In recent years we have taken numerous steps to reduce our carbon footprint: converting 20 percent of lawn space to native plants and prairie restoration, adding a huge solar array to the roof of the Recreation-Fitness Center, and purchasing 100 percent of campus electricity from renewable sources. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
At Goshen College, students have initiated all sorts of green projects on campus. Join our environmental club, EcoPax, volunteer with our student-led composting program, plants trees on campus, research with the Algae Town project, oversee controlled burns of the campus’s native prairies, and much more!
