Getting involved in leadership and volunteer opportunities is a great way to develop new skills, gain experience, and make a difference on campus and in the world.

Orientation leaders and volunteers

Orientation plays an important role in welcoming new students to campus and helping with the overall adjustment to life in a new setting.

Students play a crucial role in positions ranging from Orientation Chairs to Orientation Crew members.


Residence leaders

Each residence on campus has residence leaders to help create the best residence experience possible.

Residence leadership positions for upper-year students include residence assistants, assistant dons, and academic mentors. Each residence also has a house executive.


Peer support

Give back to fellow students through our many peer programs. Some peer opportunities are volunteer positions and some are paid positions.
