A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):

Residence Life has worked through the sustainability advisor program to introduce sustainability to new and returning students. They have added Green Move-in information to summer mailings to residents. At the start of the Fall semester, residents will be encouraged to earn a Green Room Certification based on a green living guide and point system developed with the Office of Sustainability. The Green Room Certification campaign includes peer-to-peer education by sustainability advisors tabling at opening day events, and ongoing contests and drawings during September, and leading up to green-living events as part of the week-long Earth Charter Community Summit in the first week of October.
