EN-2: Student Orientation
Sustainability & Strategic Planning Coordinator
The percentage of entering students that are provided an opportunity to participate in orientation activities and programming that prominently include sustainability:
A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation:
New student orientation consists of multiple contacts with new students during the spring and summer prior to their initial fall semester. Students and parents receive a mailing that includes information on recycling on campus and provides suggestions on how to be more sustainable when moving into campus housing. They are also provided information on alternative transportation options such as U-Pass, free rides on the Green Bay Metro, to encourage leaving the car at home.
In FOCUS, held in early June, students and parents come to campus to complete the registration process and attend a resource fair. The Sustainability Committee partners with a student organization to present information on various programs geared to promote sustainable behaviors while attending UW-Green Bay.
In late August, FOCUS-Orientation is held for the students which typically includes a campuswide scavenger hunt/ Amazing Race format event. One of the locations included in the event was one of the campus bus stops, where Metro hands out bus schedules.
