Welcoming new students: one SSO Orientation leader’s experience

For most incoming students, Orientation is their first sense of what student life entails. For upper year students like Zehra Haque, Orientation  looks a little different: it's is about passing on the knowledge and enthusiasm they’ve gained since their first days on campus, and sharing what being a Waterloo Warrior means to them.

Most students participate in one Orientation week. Maybe two if they volunteer as a leader. But for Brittany Caines, one or two just wasn’t enough. This year she’ll be volunteering for the fourth time during Orientation.

Hello! My name is Erin Wong and I’m in my last year of Kinesiology from the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences. Since November 2013, I was given a great opportunity to be a part of the Federation Orientation Committee (FOC) team as a representative of the Student Success Office.

Have you talked to Phil Everson recently? If you’re one of this year’s new students, chances are you have been chatting with the Management Engineering student – or at least one of his team members. Last week, Phil oversaw seven other upper-year students, with varying interests in media, photography, social media and marketing, who brought live updates from Waterloo Orientation.
