A huge congrats to intern, @matildurrrr, on passing the #LEED Green Associate exam! DYK: Students can get discounts on exams and AU is a @usgbc member.

Spoke to the Office of the Provost about the #GreenOffice program, and got this cute little succulent! Office plants can help improve wellness and connect you to nature. Thanks!

Welcome to campus, #AUPreview! As you heard in opening remarks, one of the reasons to make @americanuniversity your home is because we are carbon neutral! #carbonneutralau

Grab a copy of @au_americanmag and turn to p 22 for a two page spread on #CarbonNeutralAU! Also available online. We are loving the “how did we do it” illustration.

The good news about all this rain? We have nine campus #greenroofs to help catch it!

What do we do when students are gone, you ask? . . We had a great time with @usgbcncr at Midsummer Night’s Green, where AU received an honorable mention for the business leadership award.

Seeing a rainstorm roll in from the @kogodbiz patio is looking good for our #raingarden! #nofilter
