Our student leaders are the heartbeat of so much of what we do. These
students are leaders on our campus and bring with them a wide range of
experiences in campus organizations, co- curricular activities, cultural
encounters and academic excellence.
Our orientation leaders are responsible for almost everything in
preparing for and running StartTU, our four-day orientation for new students.
These leaders work with a small group of students throughout the experience and
then stay in touch with their group throughout the first year of college to
answer questions, help with challenges and boost the confidence of new
Additionally, our orientation leaders are an integral part of ImpactTU,
our first-year leadership program. These leaders facilitate group discussion,
share their own stories, and help with logistics.
Selection of orientation leaders is a rigorous and intensive process
involving administrators, faculty and staff members from across the TU campus.
Current students interested in applying to become an orientation leader should
look for information from the office of New Student Programs and Services in
mid-fall each year.
