What is O-Team?

O-Team is a group of 25+ student volunteers who will help with opening activities during the week that new students move into the residence hall communities in August. Each member must have previously lived in the residence halls and must be available during the week of move-in as well as for one informational session in May. No experience is necessary but all O-Team members must be extremely enthusiastic towards welcoming new residents. Members will not only ease the workload on residence life staff during this busy time, but also help students feel welcome and informed during move-in. O-Team members are expected to have an exceptional attitude and must work well with other team members.

To keep all of these great things going it is important to have strong leaders.
