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

Throughout each orientation, a PowerPoint is set up in several locations that rotates between general sustainability facts, a quiz about UNCW Sustainability and pictures of students getting involved. Campus Dining, Housing & Residence Life and the Library speak or promote sustainability in their individual areas during orientation through talks, tabling and their website. All new students are invited to attend the Resource & Involvement Fair where the Sustainability Committee, Environmental Concerns Organization, Surfrider and other sustainably focused organizations can promote their message and invite others to volunteer.
