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:

In 2010, Greening UM and Residence Life came together to install a Model Room in Turner Hall that provided a physical example of how to conserve energy within a Residence Hall setting. There was also a model room that was constructed for Welcome Feast that was placed on the Oval. The model room promoted the Use Your Power Wisely campaign, the Green Your Dorm Room resource and energy efficient appliances. It also compared the difference between a compact fluorescent light bulb and a standard light bulb within the dorm setting.
