Whether it’s apples from the orchard, frog songs in the pond, or classes powered by daylight and photovoltaic energy, the Adam Joseph Lewis Center (AJLC) for Environmental Studies has quite a bit to offer. Dedicated in 2000, the AJLC is one of the most advanced examples of ecological building design with a focus on sustainability. The wall-to-wall windowed lounge provides a sunny, greenhouse-esque study space.
Other interior features like the Living Machine—which simultaneously relieves bladders and the environment, processing and cleaning wastewater using natural methods found in wetlands—give students a hands-on way to get involved with and learn about environmental science and its application.
