Campuses like the University of Illinois at Chicago are focusing more on green spaces, both for the environment and for the health benefits to students.

Students and faculty recently took part in a “Growing Green” event, hosted by UIC’s Office of Sustainability. It was an opportunity for students on campus to learn the importance of keeping their campus green.
