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

During the school year the college provides orientation activities and programs that prominently included sustainability for all freshman and transfer students. The Sustainability Office staff hosts freshman orientation as a zero-waste event and provide educational outreach at a booth. Transfer orientation has a sustainable educational outreach booth which provides information on campus sustainability in the curriculum, operations, and student life. Both freshman and transfer orientations provide information about sustainability in the orientation handbook. Furthermore, the Vice Chancellor for Student Success and Enrollment Management, Homer Wesley, highlights the campus’s sustainability efforts in his speech and sustainability-related slides are played in the background for the duration of orientation.
