Summer Orientation Leader Applications Open Through November 24

Students can now apply to become summer orientation leaders to help guide the incoming freshmen class around campus.

Applications are open now and close on November 24. Positions are paid, too.

Orientation leaders work to welcome freshmen to campus each summer while mentoring younger peers. Doing so should be a lot easier this time around now that New Student Orientation is expected to be held in person for the first time in two years.

If chosen to be a part of the “OTeam,” students must complete a three-credit course during the spring semester and be full-time undergraduate students next fall. They also need to have at least 24 total credits under their belts by the end of spring 2022, plus have a cumulative 2.5 GPA or higher.

Orientation leaders are expected to be available to work from May 12 to August 21, with a break from July 23 to August 10. They will be expected to work all hours of the day, including late evenings and weekend hours. Leaders are also not allowed to enroll in any classes during this time or have another job.

Interested in learning more about becoming an orientation leader? Check out one of the following info sessions in 131 HUB this month.

  • Wednesday, November 10th: 4:00-4:45 p.m. 
  • Monday, November 15th: 8:15-9:00 p.m.
