Each year the Office of New Student Orientation interviews some of UA’s best and selects a group of enthusiastic, dedicated, and independent undergraduate student leaders to serve as Orientation Leaders in the spring and summer.
Orientation Leaders are the first faces of The University of Akron, serving as representatives of the UA student body, group facilitators, and role models. Orientation Leaders help incoming students and their families’ feel good about the choice they’ve made in UA and help them transition into their new roles. Orientation Leaders will take away new skills and experiences that will open doors and aid them in future careers and opportunities. Plus, it’s always a summer full of fun and memories! Our team of Orientation Leaders soon becomes a family!
Check us out on Facebook under UA Orientation Leaders to hear from some of our past Leaders about the experience.
Each year, we hire one graduate assistant who is pursuing a degree in Higher Education, Communications, Business, or Public Administration.
