Bowdoin gets it too

While perusing Sierra Club's top 10 list of Schools that "Get it"(meaning their campuses are environmentally friendly - you know, they recycle, have "green" buildings, don't allow students to gillnet for dolphins, etc.), I was happy to see that my alma mater, Bowdoin College, made the "honorable mention" category.

It would have been nice to see it in the top 10, like Kevin Z's Penn State, but honorable mention is a good start. Now if only RWU would follow suit.

Bowdoin probably doesn't have 10 million (annually) going into campus sustainability initiatives though...

I don't know, Bowdoin's endowment is up there - on the order of $580 million. Surely they could spare $10 million for sustainability.
