A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation:
Summer Welcome, Transfer Summer Welcome, and Winter Welcome are all opportunities where incoming students can learn about the various organizations and offices that are sustainability focused and driven to become involved with. For example, the Sustainability Office, Sustain Mizzou, and the Environmental Leadership Office are present in the resource fairs attended by freshmen and transfers at all welcome fairs.
The Fall Welcome Campus Picnic in the Mizzou Rec Center is a zero waste event. The leftover food and compostable serving materials used are transported to Bradford Research Farm to be composted.
