Orientation Leaders

Becoming an Orientation Leader is a great way for upper-year students to get involved, and help welcome new students to campus. Applications are now closed for the 2021 season.

What is an Orientation Leader?

Each year, approximately 350 upper-year students volunteer their time to help new-to-UCalgary students feel at home during Fall Orientation.

In addition, we have created a new, expanded version of the traditional Orientation Leader Role. The First Year Experience Leader (FYE-L) role will span from April 2021 through April 2022 and will also participate as an Orientation Leader in Fall Orientation.
