Apply to be an Orientation Leader (OL)!  Deadline is 10/12/17

Orientation Leaders (OLs) serve as ambassadors for Syracuse Welcome to help incoming students transition to Syracuse University. They assist with move-in, help facilitate large scale events, and serve as a resource for all Orientation and Syracuse related questions. OLs must work well in a team, possess strong communication skills, be responsible, punctual, and enthusiastic about SU. OLs cannot be Resident Advisors (RAs) or Pathfinders due to the conflicting time commitments. Orientation Leaders are also expected to come back to campus early to receive training.

Success Tip of the Week

Take Advantage of ALL the Resources

Most students overlook the vast network of readily available resources colleges have and go through the semester on the bare minimum – attending classes alone. Make it a rule to frequent professor or TA office hours, the campus libraries, tutoring and writing centers, and various walk-in help clinics for free, valuable information.  For assistance connecting with resources, stop by the E&CS Student Success Center in Link 121.
