An Orientation Leader (OL) is an undergraduate student who helps incoming first-year and transfer students transition to NIU. An OL’s primary role is to build connections between new students and help form a sense of belonging on campus. Additionally, OLs serve as a resource and role model to new Huskies.
Orientation Leaders will participate in semester-long training and will assist with summer orientation programs from May to August. To further their leadership opportunities, Orientation Leaders will assist with various programming during Week of Welcome (WOW).
