Viking Voices showcases student opinions on different issues by asking them different questions.
Has your physical self esteem changed since you’ve been in college? How or how not?
“Yes, it has. Mostly through my major and seeing how Western really values sustainability. In
our major we learn to sustainably recreate in the outdoors.”
“I would say a little bit, yeah. I see a lot of people riding bikes on campus and there’s lot of recycling bins and all that. It makes me more aware.”
“Yes, it has actually. Because back home no one really talks about it at all and that’s pretty much all Western talks about.”
“I was really into sustainability before coming up here and part of the reason why I chose Western was because they are very environmental friendly and sustainable friendly as well.”
“Definitely. I grew up in a really rural community, so urban-ish sustainability is very different in that you’re not composting as much, or doing stuff like that, in student housing. They give a lot of options for learning about sustainability which I think is really cool.”
