In 2014, students Alex Suber and Julian Kraus-Polk introduced the Sense of Place program to the New Student Orientation. The program was built to familiarize new students to the unique ecology and community of Colorado Springs while fostering the spirit of sustainability that Colorado College aims to embody. The presentation introduced students to plant, bird and animal species within the area as well as the energy and waste disposal systems that support Colorado Springs and Colorado College.
