WOW Team is comprised of a group of student leaders who plan and execute SLO Days and the Week of Welcome. We spend the year developing programming and training our Orientation Leaders to make new Mustangs feel welcome and prepared for their time here.

Work directly with Pro Staff and Orientation Board to plan programming for WOW Team and over 900 WOW Leaders, facilitate Team trainings, and reach out to people on campus and in the community to help plan events and activities for new students during Week of Welcome!

Work directly with Pro Staff to lead WOW Team and WOW Team Leads and plan, organize and execute the entire Week of Welcome in the fall. Reach out to community members and campus partners, train facilitators, and present leadership development training to 900 leaders.
