Be a Mentor for Incoming Students

We can pretty much all agree that the transition from high school to college is a huge step, made much easier by having others to lean on. If you are passionate about mentorship, or have some advice to give based on your experience as a first-year student, consider applying to be an Orientation Mentor for the 2020 orientation season.

Orientation Assistants (OAs) support and mentor new students as they transition to The University of Texas at Austin, and they are among the first people new students and families meet when they come to campus. Information sessions are happening this week and next to learn more about the application process and responsibilities of an OA. Make a difference in the lives of incoming freshmen and come out to an information session this week!
