Apply to be an Orientation Group Leader

Are you interested in helping new students transition to Western New England University? Did you have a memorable SOAR experience, and want to make sure someone else can have the same opportunity? If so, apply to become an Orientation Group Leader today! 

The term of service for Orientation Group Leaders (OGLs) is expected to begin on or around May 26 and conclude on or around July 25. Given the nature of the SOAR program, OGLs must be able to dedicate themselves fully to the program. The latter responsibilities are outside the employment framework of OGL. Hence, other commitments during the period of May 26-July 24 will be difficult to manage without conflict. Long hours over a sustained period are expected with little expectation of time off. Additionally, there will be training sessions throughout the spring semester. OGLs not otherwise named to another leadership position within the context of Transitions should also be able to commit to the Transitions Program, specifically August 24 to September 7.

Application Process

If you are considering applying, there will be information sessions. The information session dates/times are listed below:

  • Tuesday, February 5th at 6:00 p.m. in Senate Chambers
  • Thursday, February 7th at 12:30 p.m. in Senate Chambers

The application deadline is Friday, February 15, 2019. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of First Year Students and Students in Transition at 413-782-1312 or email Alyssa Caliguri, Assistant Director for First Year Student Success, at alyssa.caliguri@wne.edu.
