Moving day is not far off for the new tenants of Pomerene Hall on the campus of The Ohio State University.
A tour last week reveals that more than a year of construction has turned one of the classic buildings on campus into a modern monument to advanced teaching and learning. Through the clamor of nail guns, circular saws and drills, the renovations are reaching their final stages.
In partnership with the Undergraduate Student Government and the Council of Graduate Students, The Ohio State University has a goal of helping 22 campus laboratories become Green Buckeye Certified by April 22, 2018 as part of its 22 x 22 campaign. The program includes resource conservation education, recycling waste reduction, energy efficiency, green purchasing and health and wellness. Applications for certification can be found at fod.osu.edu/greenbuckeye . A score of 75% in three out five of the major categories is needed for certification. The first 22 labs to be certified this spring will receive a $200 travel award...
Energy conservation measures will improve lighting at dozens of campus buildings and create a more efficient heating and cooling system for a campus laboratory building through capital projects to be launched in spring 2018.
These energy efficiency projects and four other capital improvement projects related to the Comprehensive Energy Management Project were approved by the Board of Trustees on Feb 2.
In July, Ohio State entered a 50-year partnership with Ohio State Energy Partners to manage the university’s energy system and improve the sustainability of the Columbus campus. The $1.165 billion agreement represents the largest investment in the...
In alignment with the university’s sustainability goals , FOD continues to support Zero Waste efforts at Ohio Stadium. Working with “I Am Change Outreach,” a non-profit mentorship program of area high school and college students and volunteers assist fans at the Zero Waste stations on Ohio State football game days. The students help Buckeye fans recycle and compost correctly and, in return, The Ohio State University Department of Athletics contributes to student scholarships supporting access and affordability.
The long-held tradition of jumping into Mirror Lake the Tuesday before the Ohio State-Michigan game came to an abrupt halt in 2015, where one student died from injuries sustained during the lake jump. Last year, the university started construction on the area, and this year, the re-development continues, with a finish date of summer 2018. Full story .
Construction cones and chain link fences may obscure some of the view of the historic Mirror Lake District , but the pace of progress is moving fast at the iconic setting on The Ohio State University campus.
“Most of the major demolition work is done. The next piece is to get the utilities in place. That includes sewer and electricity,” said University Landscape Architect Steve Volkmann.
By selecting a dedicated team of Zero Waste Tailgate Interns, the Tailgate Recycling Program will see numerous benefits and improvements in tailgate waste diversion efforts. Working in teams, interns will be assigned to a specific tailgate lot to educate and engage with the fans on proper recycling and waste disposal methods. Additionally, interns will work to keep their lot as clean as possible, which may include moving disposed materials.
Approximately 6 or less hours on gamedays (Saturdays) depending on kickoff time. If you want to attend the game, that...
Plans for the renovated Mirror Lake are moving forward after members of The Ohio State University Master Planning and Facilities Committee signaled their support of a plan to expand the scope of the historic campus location. The full Board of Trustees agreed with the changes Friday.
The planning committee reviewed updated renderings before voting to approve a $2.5 million increase in the Mirror Lake construction project. The additional funding will come from private donations and is for overlooks at Oval Drive and Neil Avenue and other amenities around the lake.
A group working to guide how the new Mirror Lake should look and function is closer to finishing their work.
An advisory council made up of faculty, students and staff held two meetings in the last two months to offer input on a new look for the iconic landmark.
“What I’m excited about is this is a model for how a more natural landscape, a sustainable landscape, could be developed on campus,” said advisory council member Daniel Struve, professor emeritus of horticulture.
