Orientation Leaders Get Ready to Welcome the Class of 2019

Meghan Kenney, Assistant Dean, New Student Programming, UAAP

The 85 students who will serve as Orientation Leaders this summer have been selected and have already started working to welcome the MIT Class of 2019. Many of the Orientation 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.

On Tuesday, April 28, the Orientation Leaders gathered for their first official training session. Leaders were able to meet each other, learn what peers would be in their small groups alongside them, and engage in some “get to know you” activities. In addition to some quality teambuilding, the students brainstormed a list of reasons why first year students should participate in all of the orientation events, and what benefits they can gain from each component of the week. This year’s Orientation Leaders are an outstanding group of students, and they will undoubtedly ensure that Orientation is a success this summer!
