NSO Leaders

NSO Leaders 2018

NSO Leaders are directly supervised by the Coordinator and Point-People. They work directly with the incoming students as well as with their fellow team leaders they are assigned with. NSO Leaders function as the first point of contact for first-year students by leading them through various activities, events, answering questions, and in general; creating a more positive and friendly environment for our new students!

NSO Volunteers

NSO Volunteers are available during NSO to help out wherever and with whatever is needed. Volunteers will mainly be contacted if “extra hands” or “support” is needed for any of the bigger activities happening during NSO.
