One of the tasks that comes along with being the Orientation Chair, is helping run Summer Orientation! Yesterday was the first official day of Summer Orientation and I am so glad I was able to play a part.
I was told about a week ago that I would have to welcome students, after President Craft. Am I the only one who would panic a little bit knowing you have to follow the college’s president?! After looking at my name tag multiple times to ensure I knew my name, I was able to welcome the morning session of students and get them on their way! Another part I played in the day was running a breakout session about student involvement and campus life. There was four sessions in the morning and four in the afternoon, so yes, I did the same session eight times in one day! The one awesome thing about that experience was that I was able to meet every single student that came through the doors for Orientation yesterday. What an awesome experience to have! This incoming class is very special, and I am already loving how interactive they are. At one point, I couldn’t get them to stop conversing with each other! They are so excited to be here and meet fellow Cobbers!
After a close to 10 hour day, I was ready to pass out. I went home and kicked my feet up and that was the most I moved all night. There are three more days of Summer Orientation and I can’t wait to continue to meet the class of 2018! Welcome to Concordia!
