Does the institution include sustainability prominently in new student orientation?:

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

2. During orientation, all new students are required to participate in the Saturday of Service, and faculty and staff are invited to attend as well. Throughout the day, participants hear from a speaker on sustainability (in August 2010, the City Arborist discussed reasons for taking care of the parks and trees in and around Syracuse), perform outdoor cleanup, move invasive species at parks around Syracuse. Sites usually include: Schiller Park, Clark Reservation, Chittenango Falls, Green Lakes, Onondaga Creek, Lincoln Park, Elmwood Park, Thornden Park and Carpenter’s Brook.
