Head Orientation Counselors organize, plan, and execute Carnegie Mellon’s week-long orientation program for approximately 100 new students enrolled for the Fall of 2019. New Student Orientation is an integral component of the Carnegie Mellon experience which assists new students in a successful transition from high school to CMUQ. We operate a unique orientation program model, whereby students (Head Orientation Counselors) act as the primary organizers for orientation, rather than the more traditional staff-run model. This model provides these four students valuable real-world work experience running a large scale program. To enhance the learning potential, CMU professional staff provides consistent supervision and advising throughout the summer.
