UT Tyler New Patriot Orientation

Orientation Staff

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 our Project Patriot the last week of the summer and are a vital part of helping our students get acclimated to their new home.

In the fall of 2018, our OLs and CLs will be selected together through a joint selection process. They will also do joint training in the spring of 2019.

Interest meetings for Orientation and Camp Leaders are the following dates and times:

October 22 @11:30 in UC 3422

October 23 @ 11:30 in UC 3140

October 24 @ 4:00 in UC 3140
