Orientation Leaders Group PhotoThe 85 students who will serve as this summer’s Orientation Leaders have been selected and are already preparing to welcome the MIT Class of 2018 in August. Many of the leaders volunteered at Campus Preview Weekend, helping pre-frosh with luggage check-in, serving as hosts, and assisting with small group icebreakers at the student welcome event.

Orientation Leaders gathered on April 17 for their first official training session. Leaders were able to meet each other, learn what peers would be in their small groups, and engage in some “get to know you” activities. In addition to some quality teambuilding, the students worked through several challenging scenarios that they may encounter, sharing some great advice and suggestions with each other. This year’s Orientation Leaders are an excellent group of students and will undoubtedly ensure that Orientation is a success this summer!
