|Orientation: Introducing Sustainability at Temple||
The well known adage states "You don't get a second chance to make a first impression". Temple's Office of Sustainability takes that message to heart. Each fall, Temple welcomes new students and their families to campus. The Office of Sustainability uses the opportunity of Welcome Week to reach out to new members of the Temple community to inform them of the university's commitment to sustainability and to ask for their involvement.
Temple's Office Supply Swap (TOSS) collects surplus office supplies and makes it available to the Temple University community for free in an effort to green the university. TOSS is open weekdays from 9am to 5pm.
