Summer Orientation

Orientation Leader Summer 2016 Information has been released! We are searching for the best results to complete our team!

The Center for Student Development & Campus Activities will select a group of dedicated undergraduate leaders to assist with implementing the Orientation program this summer. Orientation Leaders (OLs) serve as resources for new students who are making the transition from their previous environment to the diverse academic, intellectual, and social culture of the University. OLs are expected to possess a specific body of knowledge about the University acquired through training and experience, and they sincerely must be interested and skillful in sharing this information with Orientation participants. Selection to the Orientation Staff is a unique honor and a rewarding opportunity for personal and professional growth.

Program Overview

The New Student and Family Orientation program is the beginning of an ongoing process of introduction that facilitates individual students and their family members/supporters transition into the learning environment of the Pace University community. Orientation provides the foundation for the overall college experience through opportunities for social interaction, intellectual challenges, cultural exchanges, and service in the community. The Orientation experience strives to emulate and espouse Pace’s core values of multiculturalism, internationalism, service and academic excellence. It is to this end that the Orientation program strives to provide practical information, familiarity with academic expectations, and an overview of their responsibility as a university community member. Additionally, the Orientation program will provide participants with information regarding the resources that are available to support the growth and development of our students. Finally, this experience is meant to be an inclusive environment for all Pace students and in keeping with that goal, the experience provides additional attention and services for some of Pace’s unique populations.
