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

During new student orientation, the Office of Sustainability presents on the University's green initiatives and tips for sustainable living. Currently New Student, Transfer Student, and Graduate Student orientation are virtual through the Ram Ready Online Modules. These modules go over the programs and resources offered by the Office of Sustainability, including the Free Store, the Learning Garden, and volunteer opportunities. This section also addresses sustainable living in the residence halls and details on where to find more information.

Students are also encouraged to download our digital Think Green: Guide to Green Living from our website for in-depth information on sustainable resources and opportunities.
