Orientation Leaders

Each year a select group of students are carefully chosen to serve as Orientation Leaders for Lees-McRae College. These orientation leaders serve as guides for freshman and transfer students who are transitioning into becoming a Lees-McRae Bobcat. This dedicated group of students assist with implementing orientation programs and weeks of welcome during the summer, fall, and spring sessions.
