Orientation Assistants

Orientation Assistants (OAs) are involved, energetic and well-trained KU students. Their job is to make your transition to KU smooth and positive. OAs will guide you through your orientation, explain advising and enrollment, answer questions, and give you perspective on life as a Jayhawk.
