Orientation leaders (OL) are the most significant contact that a new student makes while attending Bulldog Days. They not only convey information to incoming students and their families, but serve as a resource to them throughout the summer and fall. The orientation leader position is one of the highest positions a student can achieve while at Samford. It is a great opportunity for any student looking to gain leadership skills, learn how to better work with others and make a difference in the lives of incoming students. If you’re ready to learn, lead and serve, then being an orientation leader is a great job for you.
