CANTON – In an ongoing effort to increase environmental awareness and participation, members of the SUNY Canton Green Campus Committee are giving away coffee and donuts for car pooling.

From 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 11, at the entrance to SUNY Canton, GCC committee members will be distributing coffee and donuts to car poolers. Anyone driving on to the campus during this time with more than one person in their car will be offered free coffee and donuts, according to GCC chair Matt Burnett.

“Cutting costs and emissions is a good start to creating a more sustainable environment for the future,” Burnett said. “We are hoping to increase people’s awareness of how their individual roles can benefit society.”

To receive coffee, commuters must have their own reusable travel mug.

The Green Campus Committee is comprised of volunteer students and faculty members who are interested in increasing awareness, participation, and efficiency in sustainable ecological issues.

SUNY Canton offers a wide variety of career-driven bachelor’s, associate, and certificate programs, as well as three master’s degrees in conjunction with SUNYIT, Utica. Most of SUNY Canton’s new four-year programs are designed so students can take them on-campus, online, or both. SUNY Canton OnLine features more than 100 courses online each semester. The college’s athletic teams belong to the NAIA’s Sunrise Conference, enabling students to compete in their respective sports for four years.
