Become an orientation leader

GVSU is looking for orientation leaders for the fall 2023 semester to welcome and assist new students as they transition into college life.

Orientation leaders must commit to working all freshmen orientation sessions for the duration of the summer, all orientation training sessions leading up to freshman orientation and following up with incoming Lakers throughout the upcoming summer and fall.

Orientation leaders are expected to be able to assist with orientation group activities and also communicate general education requirements to incoming students.

In order to apply, students must be a current GVSU undergraduate student and a full-time student for the fall 2023 semester. Some required activities for this role are attending Convocation during Welcome Week as well as attending the Title IX event. Orientation leaders also have to attend at least one in-person activity during the extended orientation.

Mandatory work days are May 1-5 for orientation training. The freshman orientation sessions are on May 8-11, 16-19, 22-25 and 31 and June 1-2, 5-8, 13-16, 20-22 and 28-30. There are also additional orientation dates July 24-26 and Aug. 10 and 11. Orientation starts at 8 a.m. and runs until 5 p.m. but orientation leaders are required to be there at 7:30 a.m.

Orientation leaders will be paid $15.70 per hour. Payment is biweekly and students must use Ultra Time to track their hours worked. Workers will also receive a stipend for all work done outside of orientation hours.

The deadline to apply for this is March 1 at 5 p.m. Applications need to be turned into the Admissions office or emailed to Mike Eichberger at [email protected].
