The university announced Friday that they are installing more than 2,000 solar power panels and a solar hot water system.
The school says the solar system will provide hot water for more than 2,000 students living on campus and for its largest dining hall.
Last spring, the school announced plans to become carbon-neutral by 2020, and says it's buying all of it's electricity from wind power.
The university also plans to install a wind turbine on top of a parking garage and a generator that runs on used cooking oil from the campus dining hall.
