WCU gets kudos for sustainability

Written by 

According to the Princeton Review, Western Carolina University is one of the most environmentally responsible colleges in the United States and Canada. The Princeton Review chose the colleges after surveying administrators at hundreds of colleges across the continent. One program that contributed to the success of WCU was WHEE Save, a campus-wide energy conservation program (now known as Reducing Our Carbon Paw Print). Through WHEE Save, energy was reduced by 10 to 15 percent. WCU also has a $5.6 million energy performance contract underway to make several campus buildings more energy efficient. 9 percent of WCU’s food budget is spent on local or organic food and the campus also switched to using E10 rather than petroleum.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
