"I loved the opportunities to connect with people outside of the College of Science and Engineering. My classes consist mostly of individual work and scientific jargon. Being an Orientation Leader allowed me to use another side of my personality as I interacted with people who showed me very different perspectives on life. The amount of self confidence I gained throughout this process will transpire to any of my future endeavors."

~ Emily, Math Major and former Orientation Leader
