MACOMB - Student Development and Orientation at Western Illinois University has announced the 2013 Orientation Team (O-Team).

The O-Team is a select group of student leaders who have demonstrated strong leadership and positive experiences at WIU through involvement in academic programs, clubs and organizations, and the community. These students serve as positive role models and group facilitators, and assist incoming students and their families throughout the year with orientation programs.

Most importantly, O-Team members serve as ambassadors, aiding new students in their college transition to WIU. It is the O-Team's goal to help new students and families connect the pieces to becoming a Leatherneck at WIU.
