JOB DESCRIPTION:
OLs work in a pair to lead a group of 20-25 new international undergraduate students for the week of IAOP. OLs take students on a campus tour, ensure they attend all mandatory and social events, and reinforce important messages by sharing personal stories and advice. OLs create a sense of community and belonging by facilitating ice breakers and answering questions as experienced peers.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 1, 2017

• For international students, Fall minimum immigration enrollment requirements must be met prior to being hired.

• Please do not submit an application if you are unable to meet the above requirements.
