Orientation Leaders are UC Santa Cruz students that are highly trained to assist you in your exciting transition to becoming a UCSC Banana Slug!

Throughout the summer, Orientation Leaders will be reaching out to you and answering any questions you may have about class enrollment, the university, or anything at all!

Who are the Orientation Leaders?

The Orientation Office hires current UC Santa Cruz students each year to welcome new students and families to the university. In preparation for service as Orientation Leaders, students participate in the University's Experiential Leadership program, which focuses on developing a leadership mindset, gaining skills and tools for building and being a part of a strong team, and growing to better serve and lead others.
