Meet Your Orientation Leaders (OLs)

 

Our Warren College OLs are a diverse group of current students from across the country and abroad. They pursue a wide variety of majors, represent all backgrounds, and are involved in student organizations at Warren College and UC San Diego.

OLs work closely with new first-year and transfer students to welcome and orient them to the Warren College family and UC San Diego Triton community.

OLs serve as a peer resource for new students. They guide new students through Warren College New Student Orientation and facilitate small group discussions and activities for members of their OL groups. OLs share their student experiences, helpful tips, and important campus information.

Be sure to check your official UC San Diego email regularly. Our Orientation Leaders (OLs) will reach out to you through your UC San Diego email in August.
