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

Prior to the start of New Student Week, Carleton sustainability assistants (STAs) provide an optional educational seminar for all peer leaders, the group of students who lead new student groups. The STAs manage a table at the New Student Welcome Tent and offer wind turbine, steam plant and student organic farm tours to students and parents. Later in the week, the STAs provide a presentation to incoming freshman to inform them of various campus sustainability initiatives and provide suggestions on how they can get involved in sustainability-related student groups and activities. The College posts a "New Student Green Guide" on the new student website to provide incoming students with a preview of Carleton's sustainability programs and opportunities.
