Student Leaders

Orientation Leaders will be with you throughout your welcome to campus. They will be there when you first move-in and continue to be a presence to the incoming class through the first six weeks of class. Starting during Orientation, these leaders will host a variety of social events aimed at promoting class unity and at having fun. You won’t have to look far during your first days on campus to be greeted by these friendly faces!
