The student representatives of Orientation Programs, in collaboration with faculty staff, have created the program's goals to ensure that incoming students are provided with an orientation that serves as a transition into academic and social life at college of engineering as well as in our community. Through the quality and integrity of leadership training programs, orientation leaders will have the skills necessary to effectively facilitate groups to ensure that every participant will have the information and support needed to succeed at College of Engineering.
1. Introduce the undergraduate community to new students from both an academic and personal perspective.
2. Provide information and assistance to new students so that they may succeed academically and develop personally.
3. Insure that students feel adequately prepared to face the challenges of their first year at College of Engineering.
4. Allow students to meet each other and develop new relationships.
