Orientation Leaders

Who are Orientation Leaders?

San Francisco State University's Orientation Leaders (OLs) are student staff who assist with the implementation of SF State's New Student Orientation Program. OLs are well-respected, academically balanced leaders on campus. OLs are chosen based on their current and potential academic, interpersonal and leadership qualities. The Orientation Leader team is selected in the fall and participates in the following summer orientation sessions.

Interested in Becoming An Orientation Leader? 

Orientation Leaders are essential for the success of the Summer Orientation program and new student transition. Orientation is the process of engaging, informing, and assisting all new students and their guests (parents, family, friends, and other supporting figures) through the essential transition to a successful college experience. SFSU Orientation Leaders aid the facilitation of this process by providing new students, parents, and guests with an engaging introduction to campus and all its resources.
