Does the institution have sustainability-themed housing (residential floor or hall, or theme house) where residents learn about sustainability together and to which residents must apply?:
A brief description of the themed housing:
Pace University’s New York City campus offers first year students the opportunity to live on one of six theme floors – one of them environmentally focused. Theme floors work to blend the residential and academic experience on campus. Students are exposed to educational events that contain a clear connection between their lives and their chosen theme. Students on these floors will interact closely with both Pace University faculty members and New York City professionals.
GREEN ADVENTURES FLOOR: Think. Live. Grow.
We are an eco-friendly community that aims to educate residents about our effect on the environment, while also allowing them to experience, give back to, and appreciate nature.
