Where Students Become Leaders
Student Orientation Staff is a premiere student leadership group at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Selection to staff is extremely competitive, and the staff represents the best and brightest of our university. The Student Orientation Staff works to facilitate our Orientation programs, welcoming over 5,500 new students & parents to campus each year and volunteering over 15,000 cumulative hours each summer.
Members of the Student Orientation Staff participate in leadership development training during the spring semester, designed to prepare them for their role as a member of the team and enhance their personal and team leadership skills. SOS Members develop skills in group problem solving, conflict resolution, interpersonal communication, program planning, team building and gain a deeper knowledge and appreciation of diversity, equity and inclusion.
