KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Western Michigan University has once again been named one of the nation's top "green colleges." It's the fourth year in a row WMU has received the honor from Princeton Review and the US Green Building Council's Center for Green Schools.
They found Western to be among "the nation's most environmentally responsible green colleges" because of its use of LEED construction standards with new facilities...its water management record...and its use of locally sourced food and trayless dining. WMU President John Dunn says the college is committed to being green, noting that it's currently installing hundreds of solar panels on some of its buildings.
