Campus Involvement Promotes Orientation Leader Program

Representatives from the campus involvement office were out in force last month promoting the college’s orientation leader program and other events.

Alex Gill, the director of student involvement, and Jordan Salomone, an undergraduate senior at Hilbert and SGA Vice President of Programming and Campus Activities Board President, were in West Herr Atrium last month to tell students about upcoming events and to promote the position of orientation leader.

“The event we are holding today outlines some of what is going on on campus,” said Salomone. The group was promoting a concert at 78 West Café, a magic show at Swan Auditorium and were also promoting the position of orientation leader in order to get students active on campus.

Gill had additional activities advertised at this event, such as “In the Hawks Nest,” where students may join CAB and Art Club on March 15th at the lower level campus center for painting, a popcorn bar, and sparkling juice. Lip Sync Battle is another unique event that will happen in Bogel 101 on March 23rd from 8 to 10 p.m, where students will compete in lip-syncing for a Golden Mic.

According to the qualification, benefits, and responsibility sections of the Orientation Leader Application. If students are interested  in becoming an orientation leader, they will receive a $500 stipend, room and board from move-in to the end of orientation, incredible leadership and professional development opportunities, and black, blue, t-shirt, and quarter-zip polo shirts. However, you’ll need to be able to connect with people in a positive way, show enthusiasm, be available for all training dates and all new student needs, be a full-time student at Hilbert College for at least one semester, and have a 2.0 GPA or higher.

The Application states that, as an orientation leader you will be responsible for aiding incoming students and their families in their transition to Hilbert College by making them feel welcome and at home. Act as an expert on all elements of Hilbert College and New Student Orientation. Attend and fully engage in any orientation leader training sessions that are necessary. 

In addition, Gill and Salomone are offering information to students who are looking for or are interested in graduate studies, like at D’Youville. You can contact Alex Gill at or Jordan Salomone at for more information or if you need guidance.
