CofC has many green projects and issues on the table. In terms of transportation, the College offers reduced parking rates for those who share rides together. The City bus system is free for the College community. Plus, all maintenance cars are electric, and light bulbs are compact fluorescent, which is better for the environment.
Favorite Things To Do
The center of campus known as the Cougar Mall (between Maybank Hall and the Robert Scott Small Building) is a popular place for students to hang out in between classes, and tables are usually set up by campus organizations such as Greek life, athletic teams, academic clubs, and volunteer organizations. Napping on the Cistern or the library courtyard is always a popular activity. The Stern Center plays host to live music functions and cultural events with free food! Several buildings on campus hold poetry readings, lectures, debates, and films.
When not in class, students can use the fitness center, grab a bite to eat at any of the dining halls, see a play in the Simons Center for the Arts, throw a Frisbee in the library courtyard, play a game of pool at the Stern Center, view an art exhibition at the Halsey Gallery, listen to a guest lecturer, or relax and listen to music on the Cistern in front of Randolph Hall-all without ever leaving campus.
