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

A slide presentation to all students at New Student Orientation shows our commitment to sustainability. Students are encouraged to recycle, minimize waste, reuse water bottles and refill the water via the refilling stations on campus and use all water wisely. Students are also directed to notify Facilities Management if they see leaking sprinklers or pipes, clogged toilets or a broken water refill station.

On the campus tours, students are introduced to LEED buildings, such as our LEED Platinum residence halls. Students also take a tour of the campus dining hall (Gastronome). Students learn about eating only what they need and not using plastic utensils, trays or straws.
