As a cost-savings and sustainability effort, the College is replacing traditional lights on campus with Light Emitting Diode (LED) illumination. Forty-four projects have been completed in the switch-over since 2015, and several are in progress, according to George Stooks, assistant vice president for facilities and planning.
The Department of Student Life has redesigned the housing options on campus to more closely align with its educational priorities, which is to help ensure that Geneseo students are best prepared to build positive relationships and become socially responsible citizens and engaged learners.
Geneseo is ranked No. 10 among medium- size schools on the Peace Corps’ 2018 Top Volunteer-Producing Colleges and Universities list. Currently, 23 Geneseo alumni are volunteering with the program worldwide.
