Orientation Leader recruitment


The Orientation Staff is beginning the search for students to serve as Student Orientation Leaders for the 2014 Orientation Programs.

Student Orientation Leaders hold paid positions, act as peer advisors, earn two 400-level credits, and receive training in leadership theory and skills.  Their role is challenging and requires a great deal of personal commitment.  They will be asked not only to guide incoming students through the rigors of scheduling, registering, and financing their college careers, but will also aid in reassuring students of their abilities and familiarizing them with campus facilities, activities, and living.  Summer Orientation Programs take place in June, July, and August.

Please contact and encourage students who have demonstrated strong academic and interpersonal skills as well as show an interest in and concern for their fellow students.  We are looking for students from a variety of backgrounds to insure that our leaders are representative of the student population.

There are four informational meetings:

Wednesday, November 6 at 6:00 p.m. in SUB 236

Tuesday, November 12 at 11:00 a.m. in SUB 232
