Sustainability: Buildings & Grounds

Past, present, and future views of same site on campus

Sustainability on Campus

Sustainability Office: Housed in the Center for Learning Through Action in Social Hall, the NMH sustainability office is the hub of our sustainability system and where Sustainability Director Becca Malloy coordinates student, faculty, and staff programs.

Electric vehicle charging station: NMH has installed an electric vehicle (EV) charging station for use by community members and campus visitors. This project was made possible by the generosity of a trustee and through incentive programs offered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The charging station is located in the Alumni Hall parking lot and can charge two electric vehicles at the same time. Use of the EV charging station requires a ChargePoint credit card or a major credit card with a smart chip. Please contact Rick Couture, plant facilities director, with questions.

Gold LEED Certification: Both the Rhodes Arts Center (2009) and Bolger House (2011) have achieved the high sustainability standard of gold LEED certification.

This past summer, I increased my awareness of my identity by reconnecting with my native country, Ethiopia.


“I don’t think I would be anywhere near the person I am today if it wasn’t for NMH. It’s enlightened me about so many different things, and I’ve met people from everywhere you can imagine.”


In my old school, I never saw myself as someone who could be a Division I player one day. Now I can.


"One of my biggest influences has been my math teacher. He built this love of math in me—specifically, the idea that math can be used to interpret the world." 


"The fact that everything is here at my fingertips has really helped me grow."


"Almost all of our classes are conversation-based, which means that you're totally engaged in classroom discussion."


"I enjoy helping my friends, and it's given me a new respect for teachers. I may even go into teaching myself one day."


"In VOTES, I learned how to prepare and present—skills I drew on in Washington."


 "This year, I'm field hockey captain. I enjoy giving advice and support."


“I like that you can start completely new things. You can reinvent yourself.”


Dance has taken this creative learner on an artistic journey.

 “My teachers told me to use my own voice, and they pushed me to think about what I really believed in.”


"The curriculum here is hard, but it’s the right amount of hard."


“The academics are extremely rigorous, but because of the way teachers present things, it’s like, ‘I have school today!’”


“The learning you can do in a study-abroad program can outweigh anything else you can do even at a school like this.” 


“NMH encouraged me to explore new things, try everything, and see what’s best for me.”


“You’ll always find a place here as long as you just be yourself.”


“There is a community here that cares about you.”
