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

In 2019, we confirmed that orientation included several sustainability booths and presentations during all transfer, summer and fall on-campus orientation sessions. In 2017, members of the Sustainability Advisory Council talked to Josh Santiago to see if broader discussion on sustainability is included in orientation. Obtained sustainable dining presentation from Stephanie Raboin. Need to determine what type of student was able to attend (grad/undergrad/transfer).
