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

All international students at Seattle Central go through an orientation that spans a couple days. A couple years ago, the Office of Sustainability created and implemented a 3 minute PowerPoint presentation on proper waste sorting that runs automatically during quarterly orientations. We run the video on loop (with a few other informational clips) during orientation as students are arriving, during lunch, and during our afternoon break. 338 international students attended orientation between summer 2019 and spring 2020. 17,073 students attended Seattle Central in AY 19-20.
