For the first time in several years, the main campus mall was free of construction when classes started in August. Throughout the installation of equipment for the geothermal energy project, which included digging 789 wells on campus, construction was a constant. At the end of the first year of operation, the geothermal energy system exceeded its goals. The university saw a 57 percent reduction in energy use, a reduction of 25,013 tons of carbon dioxide emissions and a reduction in the use of water of over 18.7 million gallons.
