Pittsburgh Magazine has named Slippery Rock University's "Leave it Green" project "one of the 50 best eco-friendly finds in our region" as part of its April issue.
The article, by Lissa Rosenthal, cited the growth of green technologies and architecture throughout the region as well as how Pittsburghers are adapting to a "green life."
In citing SRU, the story points out the strong student leadership in support of the environment.
