Orientation Staff

Orientation Leaders and Welcome Week Coordinators are upperclass Hofstra students who help plan and implement the Summer Orientation and Welcome Week programs. These students are responsible for helping incoming students with the transition to academic and co-curricular life on campus. During summer orientation, Orientation Leaders stay in the same residence halls and first-year students and lead them to sessions and give their perspective of college life. Both positions are one of the most sought after leadership positions on campus. We hope that you use our student leaders as a resource during your time at New Student Orientation, Welcome Week and beyond.
