Orientation Leader Information

New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) 2019 orientation leaders

Orientation leaders (OLs) are essential for the smooth transition of new students into the Columbia community. OLs assist with everything from move-in procedures to staffing the information booth during NSOP. They may be assigned to staff events, tours, trips or lectures. OLs also directly interact with new students through assigned groups of new students. OLs are responsible for communicating and meeting with these new students about NSOP events and for offering advice and encouragement during their transition to Columbia. OLs must project a positive and excited attitude towards Columbia University and NSOP to new students at all times.

Some orientation leaders are also needed to help facilitate Responsible Communities at Columbia (RC@C) and Live Well | Learn Well programs for new students. If you are interested in these facilitations, find more information here. An additional interview will be required with Alice! Health Promotion staff to be considered. OLs who are also hired to be facilitators will be required to arrive at campus two days prior to OL training. All meals and housing will be covered by the program.
