WOW Team is comprised of the Facilitators that assist the Orientation Board in training 900+ Leaders-in-Training. They evaluate Leaders-in-Training throughout Spring Training meetings to ensure we graduate the best Orientation Leaders possible! 

WOW Leads work directly with the Orientation Board to assist in planning programming for WOW Team and over 900 WOW Leaders and reach out to campus partners and partners in the community to help plan events and activities for new students during Week of Welcome!

The Orientation Board works directly with Pro Staff and supervises WOW Leads and WOW Team. The Board plans, organizes, and executes the entire Week of Welcome in the fall. They also coordinate programming for SLO Days during the summer. Orientation Board coordinates with campus and community partners, trains WOW Leads and Team, and presents leadership development training to 900 leaders.
