A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):

Sustainability hosts a booth at the New Student Orientation fair where we pass out information about our program, answer questions, and inform students how they can do their part to help make Baylor go green.

Sustainability initiatives are also mentioned in several presentations by various departments (such as Dining, Transportation, etc.) to new students and their parents, highlighting many of our efforts to create a more sustainable Baylor.

The Office of Sustainability also hosts its own half hour presentation every day for new students and parents.

All students moving into residence halls and university run apartment complexes receive a recycling box for their individual rooms to use throughout the year.
