LEED Certification

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is an internationally recognized green building certification system. The program's goal is to encourage stewardship of our resources. LEED buildings work to improve performance in energy saving, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction and improved indoor environmental quality. For the University of Minnesota, Crookston being LEED certified means that Evergreen Hall's apartment-style living was designed with consideration for sustainability and less environmental impact. Evergreen Hall makes use of green building materials, such as countertops throughout the facility that feature recycled glass, banana peel fibers, or paper; recycled vinyl and plastic in the flooring; energy-saving lighting; and interior woodwork milled from evergreen and ash trees removed from the construction site.

UMC Evergreen Hall Building Photo (Winter)Evergreen: The Name

The title for the new residence hall was an important feature. Students voted on three names before the final decision was made: Northstar, Legacy, and Evergreen. Each of the three names held a strong meaning for project backers. After votes and debate, the building was eventually named Evergreen in honor of the evergreen trees cut down to start its building.
