Orientation Leader (OL)
Orientation Leaders serve as a crucial component of the New Student Orientation (NSO) Program and are charged with assisting new students and families with their academic, social, and cultural transition to the Drexel University community. In collaboration with other NSO staff members, OLs assist in assimilating new students and families in areas such as academic study, social support skills, and awareness of campus policies, activities, and services.
