Sustainability at Hendrix

At the Library

  • Rent-a-bike: The Hendrix Bike Revolution bicycle collective program has hewn together a fleet of bikes for the Hendrix community to rent. That’s right: free, sustainable transportation. Parked outside the library, the bikes (and light-up, flashing wristbands, if you’re biking at night) are available for free check-out. The collective, which started in fall of 2006, also teaches students how to build and maintain their own bikes. The larger goals: spreading bike culture, teaching students how to go (or stay) car-less, and fostering a more bike-friendly community. Hendrix Bike Revolution is a student organization which operates a bicycle maintenance and repair shop on campus behind Buhler Hall where students can take their bikes for free repairs.
  • Learning Commons: The tutoring area in the library, known as the Learning Commons, allows many buildings that used to be used for tutoring to be closed in order to save energy late at night.
