“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.”
