Meet Our Orientation Leaders

Our Orientation Leaders care, support and help each-other on a daily basis. In the beginning they were strangers, but quickly became family. Orientation has been a part of USI's history for generations. We love continuing that tradition of making the best student leaders the face of USI. All our leaders are unique in their own way, but share the same passion for guiding new students throughout their first year of college. Below are the current Orientation Leaders that will help our future Class of 2026!
