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

Presentations are given on the graduation requirements for The University Colloquium: A Sustainable Future course that all students must take, as well as presentations on Service Learning requirements and opportunities and are briefed on campus wildlife. Additionally, presentations are given on carpooling and car sharing programs and there are tables that promote environmental clubs and sustainability initiatives at the Orientation Resource Fair. Finally, orientation leaders point out ways in which FGCU's campus is designed to be sustainable (i.e. bike racks, LEED buildings, etc.) on campus tours.
