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

The Macalester Sustainability Office publishes a set of materials to be distributed at new student orientation, the most important of which is our student written "How to be a Sustainable Scot". In addition, the office posts sustainability tips and links to our model dorm room website through a first-year facebook page maintained by our Residential Life department prior to Move-In. We are also including videos on composting and an event where Residential Assistants inform and discuss ways students can be more sustainable in the dorms (for example: encourage students to share refrigerators).
