Connections Leadership

Connections Event

Introduction to the Leadership Staff

     Orientation Coordinators are student role models and mentors who serve a vital role in the transition of first-year students from high school to college as well as helping new transfer students adjust to Kutztown University.  Many hold additional leadership positions on campus. These students are dedicated individuals who possess strong leadership and communication skills, a desire to be part of a team, and pride in Kutztown University.

     Orientation Coordinators, or OCs, are students who have been facilitators for at least a year. They lead the facilitator recruitment and selection process, assist in planning and training of staff  and work closely in the development of the first-year and transfer orientation process. They lead first-year students in the summer through the orientation process  by answering questions and assisting students with the process of course registration. Recruitment for OC's takes place at the end of June each year.
