All incoming first year and transfer students are required to participate in orientation either on campus or online. During the on-campus experience, students are exposed to composting as well as sustainable commuting option for navigating Omaha. All students and their families receive a New Student Welcome Guide which also highlights our campus commitment to sustainability and ways for them to get involved.
