Griffin Orientation Leaders
Approximately 30-40 Westminster College students are selected each year to serve as Griffin Orientation Leaders (GO Leaders). As a GO Leader these students participate in required spring trainings, Fall, Spring, and Summer Orientations. They work together to create a welcoming environment for new students and their families. Each GO Leader works closely with a group of 10-12 new students to facilitate small group activities that help them get acclimated to Westminster College.
