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

All incoming students receive a reusable water bottled in their orientation bag. Inside the bag is an insert about campus sustainability. Sustainability information is also included in the New Student Survival Guide.

Additionally, the University's annual Goodbye, Goodbuy! move in sale is an official program of orientation and promoted to incoming students and their parents. Goodbye, Goodbuy! is a program that captures the usable items that students discard during move out and resell them to incoming students.
