A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation :
There are five categories of pre-orientation trips available to incoming first-year students: Appalachian Adventure, Archaeology, Freedom Ride, Volunteer Venture, and Sustainability.
Five of the trips are directly related to sustainability: Sustainable Development, Sustainable Food Systems (on-campus), and Sustainable Food Systems (off-campus) (addressing all three pillars of sustainability), Volunteer Venture (addressing social and economic sustainability) and Appalachian Adventure (addressing ecological sustainability).
Every first-year also does a "Perspectives" tour of the campus where one of the stops is Service Learning and a walk-through of the Campus Kitchen.
Additionally, the Campus Garden manager, director of sustainability and energy specialists provide information about energy and sustainability for Residential Advisers prior to orientation for first-year students.
