New Student Orientation is held six times during the summer and serves over 90% of incoming students. New Student Services in the Dean of Students office coordinates Orientation (http://deanofstudents.utexas.edu/nss/).

The only direct reference to campus sustainability is in an hour-long optional session on the second day of Orientation, which is led by the Campus Environmental Center. Typical attendance at the optional session is 10-15 students.
