A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation:

New Student Orientation is a comprehensive introduction to Clarkson University, where new students are introduced to Clarkson’s academic programs through an academic orientation within their individual departments, a book discussion of the common reading, team building activities, and fun entertainment. Clarkson’s co-curricular opportunities, resources, and services for students are also highlighted. This includes all new students gathering together to participate in several sustainability activities (e.g., 'So you think you can recycle?' and 'Get Off Your Do-Nothing and Do Something!') . Orientation for new graduate students also includes an introduction to sustainability and the So you think you can recycle activity.
