A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation :
The Director of Sustainability and EcoReps have presented at New Student Orientation (NSO) and provided information during tabling sessions. Sustainability is also referenced in other presentations throughout the day specifically within the context of wellness and its importance to our campus. Additionally, campus sustainability highlights are included in both campus and housing unit NSO tours. The New Student Orientation includes both incoming and transfer students. EcoReps also provide information on sustainability at the Graduate Orientation Week Resource Fair (GROW).
