2022 Orientation Counselors

Our orientation program is assisted by engaged student leaders from all across campus. Each fall, over 100 students apply to be a member of the team and approximately 30 are selected. The team is led by two returning student leaders who serve as SOAR Student Coordinators. As team members, our OCs complete a three-credit hour leadership course in the spring, attend a regional leadership conference, and complete two weeks of in-depth summer training. We look forward to the impact these students will have on our incoming students and families this summer!
