As nearly 10,000 undergraduate students prepare to begin classes in the fall, 34 orientation leaders have been busy this summer welcoming these new freshmen and transfer students, and their families, to campus. Orientation leaders show students and their families the ins and outs of campus, offer insights on how to connect with resources and share plenty of Spartan spirit at a total of 16 orientation sessions.
We are pleased to share a series that introduces some of the orientation leaders who shared their own educational goals, why they are involved as an orientation leader and their favorite Spartan memory.
Major and expected Graduation date:
International Business, Spring 2021
Why did you become an orientation leader?

I love connecting with my students and staff and making San Jose State and welcoming and exciting as possible.
What advice would you give to incoming students?
To be comfortable with being uncomfortable, to put themselves out there and get involved!

Being an Orientation Leader has BY FAR been my favorite experience at SJSU. I’m excited to study abroad in the fall too!
What has been your favorite class?
My favorite classes were Global Sport and Theater Appreciation and my favorite event was Fire on the Fountain.
Other thoughts on SJSU?
I want new students to believe that this campus belongs to them just as much as it does to everyone else!
