The O-Team Leaders are the first faces for new students entering post-secondary at KPU, and serve to help the new students transition into the KPU way of life. This transition can be difficult and scary for some - especially in a virtual setting, so the O-Team is there to provide a genuine peer-to-peer welcome, and show them all the supports that KPU offers, which will increase their chances of success in their first year of post-secondary. In other words, the O-Team is kind of a big deal!

What past O leaders have said about their experience:
I feel I improved my interpersonal skills, leadership skills, and I also received self-satisfaction from being able to help new students transition into Kwantlen by showing them around and offering them some tips and advice.
I learned a lot about working successfully in groups which I would be able to use in my day to day life. Orientation gave me an opportunity to get to know amazing people.
I enjoyed the friendly energy of the team. Everybody was helpful and willing to have a good time. It was fun to be able to meet fellow students from Kwantlen with similar interests and goals.
