Keystone College is committed to the protection and preservation of our environment. We have taken many steps towards the achievement of a green campus and made many contributions for preserving the Earth through sustainability.
- Named by The Princeton Review as one of the most environmentally responsible colleges in the nation
- Recognized by Sierra Magazine as one of the nation’s top “cool” schools for creating and preserving a green environment
- A charter member of the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment
- Recognized by the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce for outstanding sustainability programs
- Voted Northeast Pennsylvania’s most beautiful campus by local newspaper readers
- Eliminate Plastic Water Bottles
Each year, Keystone College eliminated the use of over 800 plastic water bottles by distributing reusable Nalgene bottles to incoming freshmen students. This not only reduced the carbon footprint left by our students, but also eliminated the possibility of littering.
