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

The college sends out a resource book for all incoming students. This book now includes a section on campus sustainability. June Orientation and Residential Life Staff receive training on campus sustainability as well to help educate and inform all new students on campus initiatives and procedures regarding sustainable practices.

In addition, Denison offers a number of Pre-Orientation trips in August for new students. Three of them have a direct sustainability component: Denison Sustainable Farm Orientation, Denison Outdoor Orientation, and Denison Service Learning Orientation.

Through our Sustainability Fellows program, First-Year students are exposed to sustainability from the first day of move-in. The Fellows present in the first residence hall meetings and Resident Assistants/Head Residents also share sustainability-related information (especially about where and how to recycle) during orientation. https://denison.edu/campus/green/green-campus-organizations
