Why are you interested in volunteering for Orientation? What makes you an ideal Orientation volunteer?

Memorial Universityís New Student Orientation is designed to welcome, inspire and socialize new students to the St. Johnís campus while fostering their independence and promoting their scholarly journeys. How can you, as a volunteer, help support this mission statement?

Orientation Volunteers (OVs) take on a variety of responsibilities during Orientation. They work together as part of a team and collaborate with fellow student volunteers, staff members, faculty and community representatives. Volunteers are needed to both act as the face of Memorial interacting with first year students and helping behind the scenes with event set-up and take-down. Each OV participates in a volunteer training session. Please select the responsibilities that you are comfortable executing.
facilitating group meetings
delivering group campus tours
delivering individual/small group campus tours
setting up/taking down events
staffing registration
interacting with first years
implementing tasks behind the scenes

From now until mid-April, we will recruiting and selecting Orientation Assistant Coordinators (OACs). OACs play an important role in not only the execution of Orientation on September 1st and 2nd, but also in the planning of Orientation over the summer. In general, 12-15 OACs are selected to support the Orientation Coordinators and Student Leadership Programs Coordinator as a part of the Orientation team. OACs meeting regularly over the summer and take ownership on a specific aspect of Orientation. In general, OACs volunteer 60-80 hours over the Spring semester. You do not need to be a student in the Spring semester to be an OAC. Are you interested in being considered as an OAC this year? Why do you feel you are an exemplary OAC candidate?
