Orientation Team Leaders

As the first tier of student leadership within the orientation staff, the 10 Orientation Team Leaders (OTLs) are involved in facilitating New Student Orientation in May and June and specific Fall Welcome events in August. The OTLs also select, train, and supervise the Fall Welcome Orientation Coordinators (OCs). This position is compensated with a combination of free housing from mid-May through June and a stipend. The selection process occurs in January.

EXPLORE Orientation Coordinators

Our perennially popular NOLA Experience program expanded in 2014 with exciting new elements – Greenie Camp, Hillel, and IGNITE. Together, these programs along with the NOLA Experience and Down & Dirty programs now fall under one umbrella – EXPLORE. These pre-move in programs are designed to introduce students to each other, to Tulane, and to the broader New Orleans community to enhance their integration into university life. A group of dedicated full time professionals from several campus departments plan the activities based on each program's topic. Our student staff assist the professional staff and lead team-building experiences. We count on our staff to be enthusiastic representatives of Tulane, sensitive guides and outstanding role models for new students.

This position is unpaid; however, student staff are granted campus housing early move-in privileges and participate in all of the activities and meals with their group. The selection process occurs in the spring.

Down & Dirty, ENGAGE NOLA: Leadership & Community Building by Hillel, and the Summer Journalism Experience recruit OCs through involvement with those units directly and are not part of this application process.

Fall Welcome Orientation Coordinators & TIDES PEER MENTORS

Some of the first friendly faces new students meet when they arrive to campus in August, the 100 orientation coordinators are involved in facilitating Fall Welcome. This position is unpaid; however, orientation coordinators enjoy the perks of early move-in to the residence halls, access to special events and several free T-shirts. During their Fall Welcome commitment, the orientation coordinators work closely with incoming students to familiarize them with life at Tulane. The selection process occurs in the spring. This year in 2017, we are excited to offer the opportunity for students to serve in a dual role as both a Fall Welcome OC and as a TIDES Peer Mentor. You may apply to serve as only a Fall Welcome OC or for the dual OC/TIDES Peer Mentor role.
