The Orientation Leader is one of the most crucial and rewarding leadership opportunities on campus. They are the student leaders responsible for creating a foundation for graduation for not only our first time first year students, but for all of the newest members of our campus ‘ohana. As an Orientation Leader you’ll help to develop long lasting connections to other student, our faculty, and our many campus resources; you’ll build a supportive learning environment to ensure that our students are academically successful; and you’ll work to create a commitment and understanding of what it means to be a proud member of our UH-Hilo ‘ohana.
For many, the Orientation Leaders are the first people that our newest students will meet and see on campus and it will be your job to create a positive memorable first impression as you reach out to support the approximately 500 students and their families that are expected to participate in the Fall Orientation Program.
Once the Orientation week is over, our work is not done. The Orientation Leader position is more than a welcome crew, it may be one of the best leadership experiences you’ll have here at UH-Hilo.
