Orientation Leaders Program

Orientation Leaders (OLs) are the face of Triton College. They serve as role models as well as sources of support and information for new first-time students. Our Orientation Leaders share information about academic, personal and social resources while working collaboratively with faculty, staff and student workers from other areas on campus. Triton College, New Student Orientation Leaders, are very excited to welcome the newest Trojans to campus each academic year.
