New Student Orientation selects dynamic groups of students each year to assist with SOAR, Opening Weekend, and Fall Welcome. Over the course of their 10 month experience, the Team will connect with over 3,600 first-year students and 5,000 parents, family members, and guests.
ORIENTATION TEAM LEADERS
The Orientation Team Leaders (OTLs) are returning staff who served as Orientation Leaders during 2017 SOAR. OTLs help with the recruitment of Orientation Leaders and play a critical role in the training of the selected Team. Serving as mentors throughout SOAR and Opening Weekend, the OTLs aid greatly in the success of our programs.
Orientation Leaders (OLs) are a select group of dynamic students with
a variety of skill sets. Throughout SOAR, OLs dedicate themselves to
first-year and transfer students in their transition to BGSU. During
Opening Weekend, OLs serve as a mentor to a group of Opening Weekend
Group Leaders (OWGLs). Through the rigorous training and effective
execution of their duties, Orientation Leaders leave their experience
more confident and capable leaders. Our 2018 Orientation Leaders are
expected to be hired in December of 2017.
