Orientation Chairs

Orientation Chairs (OCs) assist the Orientation Transition & Retention (OTR) staff in the planning and implementation of orientation programs for new American University students and their families. In addition to working with new students and families, OCs lead teams of Orientation Leaders and work closely with many departments on campus. OCs are expected to work part time throughout the spring semester and full time throughout the summer.
