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

- Frosh includes pamphlets from the Office of Sustainability and information is also included in the handbooks for SSMU and the residences provided to students
- The Office of Sustainability is present at Discover McGill, and has run specific events (ex.sustainability tour, panel, etc.)
- Radical Frosh offers a series of workshops and tours presenting social and environmental issues at McGill and in Montreal (Note, however, Radical Frosh is attended by only 2% of new students and, as a result, reaches a small proportion of the student body)
- Orientation is moving towards a more sustainable model, from operations (reusable cups), less focus on alcohol consumption, consent training for all facilitators
