"The Orientation Leader experience was beneficial in more ways than one. Being a CFANS student I saw the diversity training and communication skills transpire into everyday interactions with professors and fellow students. My Orientation experience definitely allowed me to develop as a person and a leader, which will help me out no matter what I do in the future!"

~ Ben, ESPM Major and former Orientation Leader
