What is an Orientation Leader? 

Orientation Leaders are students who are selected to assist with new student and family transition to UNT. Tasks range from providing technical assistance on the myUNT website to comforting a student who feels homesick or providing assistance during orientation programs to answering general questions about UNT for parents of incoming freshman and transfer students. Orientation Leaders must be flexible, perceptive, willing to take initiative, empathetic, and team-orientated. The Orientation Team goes through intensive training during the spring and summer. This unique leadership experience hires students to serve as Orientation Leaders working with new students, and Parent Orientation Leaders working with parents and family members.

2019 Orientation Leader applications will be available January 14. Applicants are required to apply online through the UNT Eagle Careers website as well as fill out a paper application available in the Orientation and Transition Programs office - Union 377.
