Apply to be an Orientation Leader

Each year, Orientation and New Student Programs will select a group of mature and dedicated undergraduate leaders to assist with implementing orientation programs during the summer and fall. Orientation Leaders serve as guides for new students, who are making the transition from their previous environment to the diverse academic, intellectual and social culture of the University.
