The Beloit College Sustainability website serves as a central location for sustainability resources for students, staff and faculty who are seeking information regarding the college's sustainability initiatives.
The Beloit Sustainability Facebook page is a resource for readers to receive updates about sustainability efforts at Beloit College, informative articles, and useful information on sustainability.
Visitors to Beloit College's new Center for the Sciences can learn more about the College's premiere academic facility by walking a self-guided tour that brings the innovative design and construction into sharp focus. Produced by graduating senior Connor Donahue '09, the tour is presented in a six-page booklet that follows 16 plaques stationed throughout the building's four floors. Each station highlights a specific "green" feature of the center that can be experienced from that particular vantage-point.
The main cafeteria on campus provides monthly slip sheets for different types of information including but not limited to:
food-based wellbeing topics based on nutritional values in specific food groups;
purchasing initiatives for "Real Food" by Bon Appetit; and
other food related information such as meanings of organic, vegan, and understanding impacts of specific chemicals/hormones in foods.
The Oak Savanna near the Science Center, has signage regarding the native plants and the process of restoring the Oak Savanna.
The Beloit College Sustainability map highlights various sustainability initiatives and sustainability aspects of the college.
The Sustainability Office created a compact brochure outlining the resources available for students to become involved in and experience sustainability on campus, through building and natural spaces, student clubs and organizations, and College programs. The brochure is intended for prospective student fairs.
The Office of Sustainability created recycling signs that are posted up around campus next to every recycling and trash bin to promote what can and cannot be recycled at Beloit College.
The Office of Sustainability created signs that are posted in bathroom stalls that underwent renovation of 3.5 gallon per flush toilets to the replacement models of 1.28 gallon per flush toilets. Currently these signs are in two buildings, but as the College replaces more outdated toilets, the Office of Sustainability will post more signs to help people understand the impacts of newer technology.
