Transitions Leaders are undergraduate volunteers that facilitate sessions for new students about the mission, vision, & values of the university.
Transitions Leaders use their personal experiences & their own transition to university life while facilitating the educational sessions.
The staff varies between 175-200 student leaders each year.
Freshmen students will meet their Transition Leaders at their first Residential Floor Meeting or at the Commuter Student Welcome.
There are 8-10 student leaders, referred to as the "Go Team," who assist in coordinating the large volunteer Transition Leader staff. The Go Team provides Transitions Leaders with the resources to educate & welcome our first year students. Below are the Go Team Leaders for 2018!
The RA’s primary role is to create community and serve as a resource for the students living on campus. RA’s are invaluable and have received extensive training in a variety of topics that help them to be a “go-to” resource for students, and will serve as a mentor for students throughout the year. Resident Assistants and Transitions Leaders will work collaboratively to provide the support needed to make the incoming students and the Transitions program as a whole, successful.
Transition Leaders are charged with leading their small groups and facilitating content during the program, while Resident Assistants will play a year-long role to support their communities and have extensive training to support students through challenges, enforce policies, and build community. There is a total of 115 RA’s that serve 6,100 residential students on campus.
