Meet the Orientation Team

Meet the Orientation Leaders, or what we like to call the "O-Team". Orientation Leaders are undergraduate student leaders selected and trained to assist in New Student Orientation. They act as guides, small group leaders, mentors and resources for new incoming students and parents. They also help guide students and parents through many activities and sessions that take place during orientation. They will provide answers to any questions regarding the transition to Barry University.
