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

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

In new student orientation, there is a presentation called "Go Green at Stout," a student-led program to help new students get a quick start on reducing environmental impact at UW-Stout. This short workshop includes topics like conservation, energy use, and recycling.

Students tour the student center and learn about the different types of recycling and composting, as well as the energy efficient lighting, etc. This year there will be a tour in the residence halls to promote the recycling and composting initiative there as well.
