A wide variety of sustainability-focused organizations table during the summer advising conferences that all of our students attend, including but not limited to: Office of Sustainability, Student Sustainability Council, Sustainable Agriculture, Environment and Sustainability Studies, Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences and the Wildcat Wheels Bicycle Library.. Sustainability is highlighted during several K-Week (fall orientation) events, including a cook-out for the entire first-year cohort featuring local food, zero waste stations, and a water bottle giveaway.
