Each year, 20 student Orientation Guides are selected through a competitive interview process to lead all New Student Orientation programs for incoming students and their families. The Southern Regional Orientation Workshop provides outstanding learning and leadership opportunities for these students to interact with Orientation Leaders from peer institutions, attend conference speakers and presentations, learn best practices and new ideas, and showcase UofM’s New Student Orientation programs. This year, the conference takes place at Western Kentucky University and costs have risen significantly. We hope to raise enough money to continue sending our entire team of Orientation Guides to this conference, but we need YOUR help! Any additional funds raised will go towards continual recognition and programming for Orientation Guides during the conference or throughout the year.
