The OD staff is largely comprised of student leaders who are passionate about Willamette and helping new students navigate through their first days on campus. OD leaders are sophomores, juniors,and seniors who have been nominated by professors, staff members, coaches, and their peers. The staff reflects the diversity of activities, interests, and majors available to students. It is this commitment made by a diversity of students which allows the program to remain relevant and useful to students. Each OD leader is committed to the idea of “once an OD leader, always an OD leader.” Even after the first few days of OD are over, your leaders will continue to serve as valuable resources and voices of experience.
