Our Student Leader Team play an integral part and serve in many areas of Orientation. They serve as Patriot and Orientation Leaders.
The Patriot Leaders, as part of the Student Leader Team, are responsible for welcoming and assisting new members of the Mason community. This includes incoming freshmen, transfers, and their family members. These students must exhibit leadership qualities both inside and outside the classroom, be full of Mason spirit, passionate about helping people and possess a desire to develop their own leadership potential.
The Orientation Leadership Team are undergraduate students who have proven their leadership ability by serving students, faculty/staff, and parent/families of the Mason community while leading by example. More specifically these students hold in highest regard a sense of passion, pride and commitment in terms of creating a successful transition process for first year and transfer students of George Mason University.
Office Specialists are dependable, highly motivated and well organized individuals, who have proven their leadership skills by demonstrating high levels of responsibility and professionalism, while executing daily office tasks and serving as the first point of contact for new students, families, faculty and staff. Office Specialists provide main reception and office support, perform clerical and administrative duties and assist with the preparation of mass mailings, program confirmation correspondence and reservation processing.
The off-campus student advisor team is a group of off-campus students that act as peer mentors to give information about available student resources, highlight opportunities for student involvement, and provide social support! Off-campus advisors are not academic advisors: they cannot give information on what classes to choose for the upcoming semester, whether or not a student should drop a class, or advise them on their studies. They can, however, give more information about the university, help get students involved, and provide advice and support on how to make the most of off-campus student life.
