A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation:
In-person orientation involves a walk of the campus facilities. LEED building aspects and recycling initiatives are highlighted during these tours. Molly Blumhoefer is currently working on getting films and/or other activities produced for online and in-person orientation that further emphasize appropriate "sustainable" behavior for campus culture.

Data source(s) and notes about the submission:
Reported by Jacquelyn Walker, New Student Orientation Manager for Outreach Services, in 2014/15 there were 2463 students that were reached IN-PERSON for orientation. There are also several online students, but they are not subject ot LEED tours. Reporter, Jackie Walker jwalker79@cnm.edu or Christina Waldau cchavez400@cnm.edu Jacob Mazel reported that in academic year 2014-2015 that 32,543 people took the online orientation at least once. This is a larger number than students who actually attended CNM. The total number of freshmen was only 10,924 (factbook), some of whom did the online orientation and some of whom (2463) did the in-person orientation. Not all freshman attended orientation. The 23% is an approximation. 2463/10,92= 23% Considering all other variables, this is a modest approximation.
