Sustainable Skidmore

Posted: 04/17/2008

Skidmore is committed to environmental action.† Skidmore saves a significant amount of energy by heating and cooling eleven buildings on campus using geothermal systems.† Each Friday the local farmerís market comes to campus to offer fresh local products to the Skidmore community.† To reduce the need for car use on and off campus, Skidmore has its own CDTA bus stop in front of the Case College Center.† At the end of the academic year, Skidmore has a Give and Go program designed to donate the used goods that students leave behind to a local nonprofit, diverting tons of material from the landfill.† Interested in helping with the Give and Go Program?† Please email Erica Fuller, Skidmoreís campus sustainability coordinator, at efuller@skidmore.edu.† For more information on Skidmoreís sustainability initiatives, please visit our new sustainability website at http://cms.skidmore.edu/sustainability/index.cfm.
