UT Tyler New Patriot Orientation

Orientation and Camp Leaders

Orientation Leaders (OLs) and Camp Leaders (CLs) are the face of the university for new students and their families. OLs assist in easing the transition for new students throughout the summer at orientation and are responsible for representing UT Tyler in a positive, enthusiastic and professional manner. Camp Leaders staff Swoop Camp during the summer, and are a vital part of helping our students get acclimated to their new home!


Training is provided in the spring semester for both positions.


Our applications for OLs and CLs will open during mid- to late- Fall 2023 Semester.
