PSU students, faculty, and staff have recognized our responsibility toward ecological sustainability. In an effort to become carbon neutral, the campus has begun to focus on an array of environmental issues, from campus-wide energy consumption to student lifestyles within the residence halls. Two buildings, Langdon Woods Residential Complex and the PSU Welcome Center and Ice Arena, are designed to have minimal environmental impacts. Princeton Review has acknowledged these efforts, and have named the university one of the nation’s greenest colleges.
PLYMOUTH, N.H.- Plymouth State University’s concerted efforts in becoming environmentally sustainable have landed it on a prestigious ranking of the country’s greenest colleges. The Princeton Review’s Guide to 286 Green Colleges is an in-depth look at the most environmentally friendly institutions of higher learning nationwide, and according to the Review, PSU has “demonstrated an above average commitment to sustainability in terms of campus infrastructure, activities and initiatives.” The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) partnered with the Review in compiling the list. PSU President Sara Jayne Steen said the institution has made a commitment to becoming environmentally responsible and the ranking embodies that goal.
