Give that warm Champlain welcome to our new students!

Orientation Leaders (OLs) are student leaders who play a HUGE role in welcoming the incoming class to Champlain during New Student Orientation in August. Help build a sense of community and belonging among first-year and transfer students. OLs lead events such as the Lake Champlain boat cruise, bowling party, and fun in the Student Life Center, featuring The Grind. OLs also head smaller orientation groups to guide students through the first days of college. Serve as an approachable resource and provide information to new students about campus and student life, where to find campus resources, and where to go for orientation events. Celebrate the beginning of a new chapter with our new Champlain College students!

There is also an opportunity for OLs to welcome new students during spring New Student Orientation in January.

Orientation Leaders are paid and selected through an application and interview process. Applications open at the beginning of spring semester. Be on the lookout for information!
