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

At the beginning of every fall semester, IUS hosts a “Week of Welcome”. One event hosted each day is the Student Involvement & Resource Fair. This event allows students to connect with resources, meet small and large scale groups, and enjoy activities. The event(s) also provides students with opportunities to get to know their departments and become better acclimated with the campus. The GREENadiers (sustainability club) as well as representatives from the Sustainability and Regeneration (S&R) program table at this event. Both entities provide additional information regarding sustainability on campus, club meeting dates and times for the semester, as well as more insight on the degree program. Both tables, give students the opportunities to connect with sustainability representatives on campus. Cards are handed out to passing students that house more information regarding the S&R program.

Example of a past event during the fair: T-Shirt Trade- If a student brought in an old t-shirt, they would get a new IU Southeast shirt. The shirts that were in good condition were donated.
