Sustainability

SUNY—Oneonta takes recycling to a whole new level thanks to the President’s Advisory Council on Sustainability that leaves no stone—make that, piece of paper—un(re)turned. In one year, the campus strategically placed over 1,200 recycling bins around campus. All campus offices use 100 percent recycled paper. The Red Dragon bookstore uses biodegradable shopping bags and the shipping room on campus accepts packing peanuts for recycling. Oneonta recently installed front-loading washing machines in all laundry rooms on campus, which have saved 1 million gallons of water annually. The college is working towards reducing storm water runoff by committing 1 million dollars to install green infrastructure technologies across campus (e.g. bioretention systems, permeable pavement, etc.). Twelve water bottle re-fill hydration stations are placed around the campus to cut down on the use of disposable water bottles. The “trayless” dining halls decrease water consumption and food waste. The campus also has an O2 composter which processes 2,000 pounds of food waste every three months. Each month, the college sends 4,000 pounds of pre-consumer food waste to a local pig farm. Oneonta’s College Camp, located on 276 acres of farm and woodland, is heated with used vegetable oil, courtesy of dining services. The college estimates that this measure saves “between 800–900 gallons of used oil from going to the landfill monthly.” Oneonta is committed to green construction standards in all new buildings and renovations. The college also boasts a Biological Field Station, located on Otsego Lake and surrounded by more than 2,500 acres of woodland, bogs, marshes, and ponds, that allows students to gain valuable experiences in field biology.

Campus Security Report

Campus Security Report

The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.

Please visit The Princeton Review’s page on campus safety for additional resources: http://www.princetonreview.com/safety

The Princeton Review publishes links directly to each school's Campus Security Reports where available. Applicants can also access all school-specific campus safety information using the Campus Safety and Security Data Analysis Cutting Tool provided by the Office of Postsecondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education: http://ope.ed.gov/security
