Orientation Leaders
Orientation Leaders (OLs) are the face of the university for new students and their families. OLs assist in easing the transition for new students throughout the summer and are responsible for representing UT Tyler in a positive, enthusiastic and professional manner.

OLs are interviewed and selected during the fall semester. The 2016 Orientation Leader application is no longer available.

For more information on the OL application process, contact us at 903.565.5873 or email
