Be Green

If you are interested in becoming green there are many different ways you can do this both at work and in your personal life. 

Become a Green Suite

Many suites across campus are choosing to become green suites.  Becoming a green suite involves committing to change certain practices to help reduce the carbon footprint of the suite.  Below is a listing of the practices and the rationale behind each.  If you have any questions or would like to hear from a suite who has become green please contact Sean Vormwald at vormwals@sunyocc.edu  or x2847
