A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):

All entering students have the option of attending a faculty lecture during Orientation that addressed the issue of sustainability in the business field. We also offer a 3-day pre-orientation program for undergraduates focused on sustainability called SustainabLEHIGH. New undergraduate students also have the opportunity to eat at the First Year Student Orientation picnic which has sustainability information and recycling. There were information sessions and resource tables with sustainability information on the Monday and Thursday of Orientation. The Office of First-Year Experience posted information about the Office of Sustainability on the Guidebok App, an app that hosts the Orientation schedule open to all students to download on a smart phone.
