If it looks familiar, you may have seen the "U of U", Utah's oldest institute of higher education, when it hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics. To get around the 1,534-acre campus, many of its 28,000-plus students and around 14,370 staff take "green" shuttle buses fuelled by biodiesel or used vegetable oil.
