The Green Roof at Rensselaer Polytecnic Institute (RPI) is a class gift of the graduating class of 2010. The roof membrane will be replaced at the end of March 2011 and the plants will be planted by RPI students on the 21st and 22nd of April.

The Class Gift is a long-standing tradition at Rensselaer. It is a type of philanthropy that exhibits pride, loyalty, and devotion to our Institute. From the clock in the Hassan Quad, to the ?86 Gym, to the stone sign on the corner of 15th and Sage Avenues, Class Gifts are forever campus landmarks that signify a class's existence at Rensselaer.
Why the Green Roof as the Class Gift of 2010 Gift?

*A lasting legacy for the Class of 2010
* Continues to enhance Rensselaer?s infrastructure and landscape for current and prospective students
*A major part of Rensselaer?s leading sustainability effort
*Helps strengthen Rensselaer?s place in the 21st century as a top-tier world-class technological research university, with global reach and global impact
*Creates a new location for future students to conduct research.
