Transcript Orientation Team Lending Jim Students A Helping Hand The Orientation Leaders, "O-Team," consisted of a select group of students who worked with the dean of Students Office to help new students adjust both academically and socially to their new environment, the University of Houston. It was the orientation leaders job to provide the new freshmen and transfer students with a comprehensive, yet enjoyable introduction to UH and the university community. These 34 students completed a comprehensive training program throughout the spring semester and worked numerous orientation sessions during the summer months. Cindy Collazo says, "the number of sessions we do really begin to add up, but the joy of meeting so many new students makes it all worth it!" During the sessions each leader was assigned a group of students from a similar major. The leader was responsible for getting the group comfortable with each other while leading them through such activities as campus tours, academic advising sessions, math placement testing, discussion groups about current issues, skits about adjusting to college life and registration activ ities. ''Some days are very hectic and stressful, but knowing that you are helping so many people is payment in itself," describes David Castillo. The O-Team was also a diverse organization, a breakdown of the leaders show that every college was represented and a wide variety of ethnicities, cultures, ages, and religions were included. "Even though we are so different, by the end of the summer we have all become close friends. . .like a team," exclaims Rudy Martinez. Nick Brines discusses, "supporting the Cougars at football games and other sporting events, national and regional conferences, parties, and our annual end-of-the- summer retreat all help keep our group working together smoothly and help foster new friendships." There were also many opportunities for students to get involved with the orientation process. The Cheer-Y-"0"s were a group of volunteers who worked along with the O- Team to provide support and help with orientation. These volunteers also stepped into the O-Team positions as they became available. -Nick Brines. 210 Organizations Orientation Team 211
