Meet the Senior Explorientation Leaders


Our Senior Explorientation Leaders are undergraduate students who work for La Salle’s Student Affairs department. They guide the Volunteer Explorientation Leaders to serve as mentors and prepare them to share their stories as students with incoming students, and also help the parents and families. Essentially, they assist in making Explorientation a success so that incoming students and transfer students have the most successful and enjoyable transition to La Salle possible.
