--Green Campus Hits and Misses

The above building is graduate student housing, where windmills and solar panels provide electricity and up to 80% of student food is grown in the surrounding garden. (Do we really need to make grad student life that much harder?)

Business Week has profiled campus efforts at greening. Most of these efforts aren't too interesting from a New Regionalist perspective. But check out College of the Atlantic, which succeeds on too many levels to mention. The mass consumer market has a place for their dorms, unlike the Penn State effort pictured above.
