Not only one of the nation's largest universities, Texas A&M is also one of its most eco-friendly.

Aggies "don’t hesitate to get involved with preserving the environment," says College Magazine.

From the article:

  • "University Dining serves up organic produce from local farmers’ markets, plus they recycle cardboard, paper, aluminum and cooking oil."
  • "TAMU placed recycling bins in 11 of the residence halls and 140 other campus buildings. Altogether this campus recycles about 60 tons of material each month."
  • "The campus’s landscape makes it easy to practice eco-friendly transportation and scoot to class. With 22 parking places reserved just for scooters and flat residential streets, enjoy your ride to class in the sunny weather.“
  • "Want to get actively involved? For the past 11 years, TAMU has hosted a Campus Sustainability Day in October. Over 25 different organizations come together to teach and empower students to become eco-friendlier when it comes to the environment and the economy."
