Orientation Leaders 2018

 They are Orientation.

We have over 100 leaders this year to help guide the incoming class through Orientation! These student leaders are critical to our program, being resources for the incoming students while also helping the Orientation Program Coordinators do a hundred tasks at once! They are scientists, artists, singers, comedians, writers, musicians, actors, historians, songwriters and athletes; but most of all, they are Orientation.

See below for quick bios of each leader*!
