Jessica Kienow of Aberdeen was selected in March as a 2000 Orientation Leader at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T). The group of twenty- nine students has been meeting regularly throughout the Spring semester to prepare for the arrival of new students in the upcoming summer and fall semesters. Kienow is a freshman, chemical engineering major at Tech.
Orientation Leaders are the first and foremost student contact with the incoming freshmen and transfer students. They are their guide, support, and source of information.
“ The Orientation Leaders deal with the issues that new students have, mainly making them feel at home here and helping them to meet friends in a new and unfamiliar place,” said Jason Lamont, New Student Orientation Co- Chair.
In addition to helping the students feel welcome, the Orientation Leaders are also responsible for planning the week of Orientation. This includes scheduling and planning events, programs, helping new students with placement testing, and registration.
