Applications now available for orientation leaders and peer advisors

The Office of International Affairs is now accepting applications for orientation leaders and peer advisors – a diverse group of students who welcome new international students to Ohio State and the city of Columbus and help them adapt to life in the United States.

Students who apply to be an orientation leader must be available to work 36 – 38 hours per week from Monday, July 22 – Sunday, August 21, 2019. Students selected as orientation leaders will be responsible for welcoming new international students, answering questions on a variety of topics such as transportation, life on campus and things to do in Columbus, while also leading orientation events and activities.

Those applying to be peer advisors will help connect new students to important university resources and policies as well as sharing their experiences as successful students. Peer advisors also help ensure that new students have a positive check-in and orientation experience.
