GREENVILLE, SC—Dawei Cai, a Health Sciences major from Saipan, will serve as a group leader at Bob Jones University during its summer orientation events on June 17-18 and 24-25 or international new student orientation held on Aug. 14-19.
Orientation leaders are upperclassmen paired with faculty and administrators to guide participants through summer orientation, a two-day event hosted for incoming freshmen and new students before the start of the fall semester.
Orientation leaders connect with students before they arrive on campus, prepare the residence halls, lead discipleship group meetings, speak in student sessions, and help with student advising. These student leaders gain valuable leadership skills, develop working relationships with faculty and administrators, and enhance their resumes while giving back to the university community.
“We believe peers have a significant influence on peers,” said Rebecca Weier, director of Student Engagement and Success at BJU. “The orientation leaders we have assembled for this year’s summer orientation are top-notch. They have excelled academically in their fields of study as well as made a significant impact here on campus through their discipleship efforts and extra-curricular activities. They are eager to make new friends of incoming students.”
Located in Greenville, South Carolina, Bob Jones University is a regionally accredited Christian liberal arts school that offers over 100 undergraduate and graduate programs in religion, education, fine arts and communication, arts and science, health professions, and business. BJU has over 3,000 students. (PR)
