Meet Your Orientation Student Leaders (OSLs)

To assist new first-year and transfer students on campus, Orientation Student Leaders lead groups of them through the Orientation program.

OSLs are students who are exceptional leaders on campus—and they all went through Orientation themselves when they started at the University!

Orientation Student Leader Coordinators help organize the entire Orientation program and have previously served as OSLs. This year’s OSL Coordinators are:

  • Angelica Canong
  • Gia Capozzoli
  • Grace Savio
  • Jessica Winston
