Each development project at Prescott College is designed to implement as many green technologies and points of sustainability as is feasible. Our recently finished Welcome Center and forthcoming on-campus apartments and Central Campus Commons include the following green initiatives.
- Passive and active solar energy technology
- Mature trees, native plants and edible herb and vegetable gardens
- Rainwater harvesting
