2016 Orientation LeadersThe 78 students who will serve as this summer Orientation Leaders have been selected, and have already started to welcome the MIT Class of 2020. 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 April 26, 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 team-building, 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!
