New Student Orientation Committee Members

The Orientation Committee (OC) members are an integral part of every new student’s success on the Drew’s campus. As one of the first faces that a new student comes to know, the OC are ‘goodwill ambassadors’ trained to help an incoming first year and transfer students feel comfortable about their new college experience. Community is the cornerstone of being at Drew and the OC are instrumental in laying the foundations.

Each OC leader is carefully trained to be able to help make a new student’s adjustment to Drew easier. More than just helping students, the OC helps students feel more comfortable about the college transition by answering their questions about college and Drew life, helping new students bond with other students through a series of activities during the five days of orientation and into the semester that follows.

In fact, this relationship begins once students are admitted to Drew. An OC leader will be a liaison and resource as early as the semester before arrival, throughout the summer months, and through the fall semester. Incoming new students are assigned to a small group with one OC leader. Oftentimes, the small groups communicate with one another over the summer and students get to know each other before they arrive on campus for orientation.
