The Orientation Leaders are a very important part of the orientation process. These students range from sophomores to seniors and show the diversity of the type of student we have here at SMCM. They play on recreational and varsity athletic teams, lead student organizations, complete service projects, take part in the arts, work with faculty on academic research, study abroad, sail and much more. They will assist you during Orientation but also can be extremely resourceful once classes begin.  If you have any questions about the Orientation Leaders you can email Lisa Coté, the coordinator of Orientation, at orientation@smcm.edu and she will get back to you!
