Orientation Advisors

2021-22 OA's

An Orientation Advisor (OA) is an upper class student at Seattle U who supports both new first year and transfer students with their transition to SU. They provide valuable resources and guidance to help new students be successful during their time as a Redhawk. OA's host small groups and fun social events throughout orientation so students can build community with one another.

Our 2021-22 OA's are ready to welcome our newest Redhawks to Seattle U and they cannot wait to see you during orientation!
