Orientation Leader/Peer Advisor Program


SUMMER 2017 



OL-PA Application Packet 2017


The Orientation Leader/Peer Advisor (OL/PA) position is a very unique experience that creates a strong, tightly bonded group of student leaders at Westchester Community College. By becoming an OL/PA, students get to widen not only their networks, but develop leadership and other transferrable skills that can be used throughout their academic and professional careers.

OL/PAs are vital to the process of planning, preparing, and executing New Student Orientation. They will help new students learn about the campus community by creating a welcoming and informative environment as they serve as host and guide for new students during their day-long introduction to academic and student life at the college.

Training and ongoing support will be provided to this team by the Department of Student Involvement. Through this position, students will be given the opportunity to gain real life experience, acquire practical and valuable skills, and make close relationships as they develop lifelong friendships with their peers. This is also a great opportunity to provide the college with a commendable service, and, in the process, receive letters of recommendation.
