This week we are welcoming the Class of 2018 on campus. Among the many things they are learning about Ripon College is the importance of sustainability: use less stuff, use less energy, and what can be recycled on campus (pretty much everything!). Several dozen students and their families dropped by the Sustainability table in Pickard Commons for the Resource Fair.

They also got to hear Kaitlyn Welzen '15 talk about the campus hoophouse and campus garden, as well as programs Sodexo dining has put in place to provide students with nutritious, local, and international options. After her presentation, Kaitlyn was down in the garden picking strawberries and getting the ground ready for a late planting.
