The building features two “green” roofs, a rain garden, solar water heating, and light-activated motorized window shades. Expected to be certified “Silver” according to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green-Building Rating System, the Athenaeum, which is open 24/7, is a smart place where visitors can both "see" and "do" while on their campus tour.
