BSU’s Sustainability Program stays focused on students’ success and academic development. As an important part of campus life, sustainability receives wide attention from enthusiastic BSU students and faculty.
Sustainable Campus Map
This GIS map of sustainability features on campus and in the region was created as a sustainability internship project by Joe CocoGenitti in 2017.
Stormwater Management Project
BSU operates a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4), a publicly-owned conveyance or system of conveyances (i.e., ditches, curbs, catch basins, underground pipes, etc.) that is designed or used for collecting or conveying storm water and that discharges to surface waters of the state.
When college students move out of residence halls each semester, they often throw things away. Some of those items end up in landfills and contribute to greenhouse gases, which is why Bridgewater State University started a textile recycle program.
Easily identifiable bins for discarded textiles have been placed on both the west and east sides of campus, near the main entrance of Scott Hall and next to the parking garage by Weygand Hall.
