Orientation Leaders work with incoming students during the first three weeks of the semester to ease with academic and social transitions to The UT Health Science Center.

Leaders will be expected to attend a one day training session, participate in orientation activities, lead a group of students in a social activity during orientation, and follow up with students within the first three weeks of the semester.
