Orientation Leadership Program

The Orientation Program is responsible for ensuring a smooth transition for all new students into the JCU Community. Our carefully selected and trained Orientation Leaders and Skippers play a central role in achieving this goal by serving as peer leaders, representatives of JCU, and role models for incoming students.


Applications for Spring 2022 Semester are now open. 

The deadline to apply as an Orientation Leader is October 13th at 5pm. For more information, please contact [email protected]

"As an OL/Skipper I am really proud of the fact that so many students I came into contact with still remember what I told them and thank me for the good job I did, even after Orientation is over. It is a very rewarding experience!" -Camilla Di Pietro (Class of 2015)
