Orientation Leader Position  Peer Mentor Position

Step 1: Complete the online application

The online application informs the selection committee about an applicant’s experiences and motivation for becoming an Orientation Leader or Peer Mentor. The application is used to determine which candidates will advance to the interview process. It is important to put extra time and energy into filling out the application completely. Online applications must be completed and submitted by February 12 at 5pm.

The application will ask you for your identifying information and a few application questions. It is strongly advised that students type their answers for the questions into a word document and then copy and paste the answers into the application. All answers should be thoughtful and at least 150 words in length. 


Step 2: Interview (Pending Invitation)

Select applicants will be invited to the interview phase of candidate selection. All of the interviews will be conducted virtually during the month of March. Candidates will be asked to complete a 90 minute group interview and a 15-20 minute individual interview. The group process interviews are designed to provide insight regarding team work, knowledge of the institution, problem solving, etc. Applicants will participate in three activities during the Group Interview days. Returning applicants will not need to participate in the interview activities, but are also not guaranteed a position.

Step 3: FYX Spring Speaker & Training Meeting

All students selected for both the OL & Peer Mentor positions are required to attend a training for their position at the end of April and a speaker for both positions at the beginning of May. More information will be shared with those selected to be final candidates.
