The week of May 15 will mark the start of Green Fridays at Delta College, an annual summer initiative to reduce the college’s carbon footprint while maintaining the same level of educational services.
Delta's main campus, Downtown Midland Center and Downtown Saginaw Center will be closed on Fridays through July 28, and will have extended hours Mondays through Thursdays to continue the same level of service to students.
The college piloted Green Fridays in 2008 as a green campus initiative to save electricity, water consumption and other resources. In addition to utilities consumption, a major factor for this effort is the emissions that result from regular commutes to and from the college by students and employees.
The Fitness and Recreation Center will remain open on Fridays. See hours at delta.edu/fitness-pool.
The Planetarium will remain open on Fridays. See hours and showtimes at delta.edu/planetarium.
