Orientation Leaders

University of Idaho Orientation Leaders are returning students who guide first-year and transfer students through New Student Orientation events. They help new students gain the information and resources they need to be successful at UI. 

Fall Orientation Leader applications are open. We have a goal of selecting 55 Orientation Leaders for Fall 2018 and we would like to have a diverse group of students from all corners of campus. As an Orientation Leader you have the opportunity to develop leadership skills such as group facilitation, organization, problem-solving and team building. As well as play a vital role in UI semester start-up by orienting new students and their families.
