Does the institution have an occupied, formally designated model room in a residence hall that is open to students during regular hours and demonstrates sustainable living principles?:

A brief description of the model room:

The model dorm room, which is shown to prospective students on campus tours, is an important tool used to share the culture of sustainability at Green Mountain College. Within the room are items that promote a more sustainable lifestyle, including reusable dishware that can be brought to events, green cleaning and bath products, a bike helmet, and a rug made of recycled materials. Locally made furniture and hub compost bins are also highlighted.

Tour Guides use the model dorm room as an opportunity to demonstrate ways that students can live responsibly while on campus and to encourage them to bring environmentally & socially friendly products to campus when they move in. Other highlights on the campus tour include SAGE Hall, GMC's LEED Gold certified residence hall, Cerridwen Farm and the biomass facility.
