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

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

The new student orientation at the University of Montana included the following activities, which taken together amount to prominent inclusion of sustainability:
- Offices on campus that are sustainability-focused and sustainability-related (Office of Sustainability, ASUM Sustainability , and ASUM Transportation) have tabled during orientation in order to increase new student awareness.
- Three years ago, there was a workshop during new student orientation that focused on UM's Climate Action Plan and increasing student involvement.
- Another aspect of new student orientation is WelcomeFeast, a meal put togher by the Farm to College program and providing locally sourced food and an opportunity to learn more about the program.
