New Student Orientation Leaders

Orientation Leaders are distinguished upper-class students who volunteer their time to prepare for and to welcome new students to campus. Individually, they represent a variety of academic majors, hometowns, extracurricular interests and cultures.

When you arrive on campus for orientation, you will join an orientation group that will consist of 15-20 students and two enthusiastic orientation leaders. Recalling their own experiences of what it was like to be a new student, your orientation leaders have chosen programs that will help you succeed both academically and personally, and they will enable you to meet other new students.

Would you like to be an Orientation Leader?

Contact Joseph Oteng or stop by the Campus Center main office.
