Orientation Leaders and Team Coordinators

The Orientation Leaders (OLs) and Team Coordinators (TCs) are upper-class students who will assist with your transition to Hartwick College and the community.

OLs help with your transition to Hartwick by:

  • Helping you to understand the challenges of college
  • Connecting you to faculty, staff and students
  • Introducing you to and educating you about resources and services on campus
  • Fostering school spirit and pride
  • Sharing a common experience with other new students

The OL staff is selected and trained in a variety of areas. Each Orientation Leader brings a wealth of experience to achieve the mission of making a difference for new students and their families.

TCs have an advanced leadership role during New Student Orientation and are responsible for the oversight of a team of OLs.
