One of the largest sustainability projects at Pollock Halls are the two beehives that are kept and maintained by a trained bee keeper.

The simple act of keeping bees enhances flowers, fruit, and vegetable production as well as helping to save the bee population.

Residence Life aims to support the Beehives by assisting in educating residents about the benefits of keeping bees. In the Spring there will be tours of the beehives where students will have a short briefing then get kitted out in professional bee keeping gear to explore the apiary and learn more.
