5 Reasons Why Orientation is Right for YOU!

All of us have worked with Orientation Services during our time at Iowa. Looking back, we can say with ease that it is one of the best decisions we have ever made. Here’s why you should join the team:

1. Easiest way to make (at least) 32 new best friends!


All spring you attend training once a week and foster an unbreakable bond with your colleagues. All summer you get to live in Burge (at no cost to you) with your best friends!

2. Professional Development


All throughout spring training you’ll learn new ways to gain speaking, group facilitation, assertiveness, and problem-solving skills that will come in handy in any profession you enter after graduation. On top of that, you’ll work with your strengths and learn to grow them even more.

3. The perks


Free housing.  1-2 meals a day. 24/7 complimentary hugs and smiles! THE BACKPACK! Pay ain’t bad either. Plus you’ll still have a month of summer left to do whatever you want once programs are over! Need we say more??

4. The boss ladies…


The best bosses on the face of the planet. Not only will you have some great bosses, you’ll have mentors that want you to get the most out of your Hawkeye Guide experience.

5. Make a huge impact.


Working with the incoming students, you have the opportunity to mold the new class into the best group of Hawkeyes ever! Nothing will brighten your day like running into a previous orientation student that is successfully tackling their first year and having them recognize you.*

Apply today for the greatest summer of your life!


*Bonus reason: You’ll get to work with a few members of our staff: Alison (A-Kray), Allison (AP), Kelin, and Naomi 🙂
