A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation:
All first year and transfer students are required to attend Bobcat Student Orientation. Beginning in summer 2012, students and parents attending orientation were given the opportunity to attend the Involvement Resource Fair at which time the Office of Sustainability was able to educate new students and parents about purchasing sustainable school products and how to get involved with sustainable initiatives on campus. Then Orientation programs also highlight sustainability (in multiple locations throughout the booklet) as an institutional value and priority. Beginning in the 2012-2013 calendar year, the Office of Sustainability was given a section of the orientation handbook, which is given to all incoming students. The Office of Sustainability also trains orientation guides to present aspects of sustainability to all incoming students.
