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

The Office of Sustainability hosts resource tables at both New Student and Transfer Conferences. These programs are designed to help students transition to life on campus. We share information about the mission and vision of the Office of Sustainability, as well as explain past and current projects and identify opportunities where they can become involved in campus sustainability. We encourage all students to take the Sustainability Pledge, apply for the Sustainability Internship Program, and stay in touch with the Office of Sustainability through social media. Additionally, at Fish Camp, an immersive experience for students at A&M, we distribute our sustainability flyer to all students in attendance.
