Area residents serve on JMU orientation team
2012 Aug 30Several area residents recently served as a part of James Madison University's 2012 orientation team. Orientation Peer Advisers are a group of students selected each spring to work with JMU's first-year Summer Springboard and 1787 August Orientation programs. Assisting the orientation office in the supervision of our 250 First yeaR Orientation Guide (FrOGs) volunteers, OPAs are a key link in the successful transition of first-year students to James Madison University. The Orientation Operations Assistants work diligently behind the scenes to make sure that the transition experience is as seamless as possible. OOAs work throughout the year assisting JMU guests, students, faculty, and staff members as well as the members of the Orientation Office professional staff. Their time and effort are crucial to the success of the JMU orientation program.
