The Office of Orientation and Transition provides a variety of opportunities for current students to serve JMU by assisting first-year and transfer students in their transition to campus. Peer connection is a powerful means to show an authentic and dynamic view of the JMU community. Student staff contributions give life to our programs and leave impressions on incoming students, guests and one another that last a lifetime.

You will experience personal growth, learn more about JMU academic, business, and student life resources, enhance relationships with faculty and staff, facilitate peer discussions, and create memorable experiences. Through Orientation, your opportunities are endless. The choice is yours – apply for one of the many positions available on the O-Team.
