Sustainability at Roanoke College
Our purpose is to present an overview of the "green" plans and practices currently underway at Roanoke College. Some items have far reaching effect and some very minor. All are an effort to continue our path toward environmental responsibility and "green awareness".
Roanoke receives Pride in Salem Green Awards
Roanoke College was just recently awarded one of three Pride in Salem Green Awards for energy-efficient renovations on campus. Roanoke was nominated for the renovations of Lucas Hall, our first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building. Read more about the award here.
Roanoke College students hope the results of a green roofs study would reduce rainwater runoff at some of downtown Roanoke's buildings and save energy costs for the city.
