Helping new students to feel welcome and part of the K-State family will be the job of 44 students selected to serve in the 2018-2019 orientation programs.

To prepare for summer orientation and enrollment sessions, as well as the school year ahead, the new orientation leaders participate in training sessions during the spring semester and early summer, fine-tuning their knowledge of services and resources on campus.
