Building a Sustainable Campus at IU South Bend

I like checking the student-housing camera periodically because it reveals important changes that are occurring on this campus. Most notably, this construction symbolizes a different way of thinking about how our actions impact the environment. Because IU South Bend is taking strides to obtain LEED certification for student housing, that means there's a conscious effort to reduce waste while constructing this site. It also means designing a building with the ideals of sustainability in mind. I commend the administrators at IU South Bend for daring to be great by creating an eco-friendly student residence.

Plans are underway to renovate the Administration Building. Let's encourage the administrators to continue these eco-friendly practices.
