Orientation Leaders (OLs) are Hofstra students who help incoming first-year and transfer students with the transition to the academic and co-curricular life on campus. During the summer New Student Orientation program, OLs facilitate small groups of incoming students, lead them through the orientation program, and provide them with an informative and honest look at college life.
Welcome Week Coordinators (WWCs) are Hofstra students who plan Welcome Week, part two of orientation that occurs right before classes begin. WWCs assist with planning many events and activities for new students, hire the volunteer Welcome Week Leaders, and many other things to ensure it is a fun and educational program.
Both positions are the most sought after leadership positions on campus and work together on each program. Both OLs and WWCs work from May-August to welcome our newest members of the pride.
