Meet the Orientation Student Staff

Each year New Student Programs selects a group of mature and dedicated undergraduate leaders to assist with implementing university orientation programs throughout the year. Orientation Leaders serve as resources and peer advisors to new students and family members attending orientation programs. Student Coordinators are student leaders who have previously served as Orientation Leaders and assist in the program development and implementation of New Student Orientation.

Fill out the interest form to receive more information in the fall.
