OLUM Testimonials:

"Being around so many people and having the opportunity to be one of the first people that incoming students meet was a fantastic experience."

"During the fall 2022 orientation, I learned so much about not only myself, but how to best interact with new people as well as other student leaders. I met such a different variety of people compared to those I have already met here during my time at UVM."

"The most important part of my position as an Orientation Leader is setting a positive benchmark for the new students. By creating an environment where they immediately feel comfortable, they are better primed to view UVM as a home; someplace they can succeed."
