Looking for MORE than just a summer job?
Apply to be an Orientation Advisor!

New Student Services (NSS) spearheads orientation for thousands of freshman and transfer students each year, ensuring they successfully transition to campus and register for classes. The department also leads programs to promote student engagement, academic success and student leadership opportunities throughout the year. NSS is seeking a diverse group of talented students to develop, plan, and execute the 2015 Summer Orientation Program!

If you are looking for a fun and rewarding leadership opportunity, working with a diverse and socially conscious group of campus leaders, then consider applying to become an Orientation Advisor (OA). OAs are important representatives for all incoming students – they are among the first people new students and families meet! The on-campus housing, meal-plan, and stipend are simply the generous monetary benefits of becoming an Orientation Advisor… Develop your skills in countless ways, make life-long friendships, and become a true ambassador for The University of Texas at Austin.
