Applications for Orientation Leaders are now open! The deadline to apply is Friday, February 12 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
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.

The COVID-19 situation continues to be unclear in terms of when normal operations will resume on Columbia's campus in the fall. Should there be COVID-19 restrictions that impact planning, we may need to make adjustments and deviations from usual/regular programming. Accordingly, the areas of responsibility and activities of student leaders as outlined may need to be narrowed/reduced/modified. Working hours, housing availability and payments may need to be adjusted appropriately. We will provide timely notification as we receive information.
All meals and housing will be covered by the program. In the event that NSOP is virtual due to COVID-19 regulations, meals and housing will no longer be provided. Additionally, we ask that applicants be flexible.
