UBC Orientation and Transition Leadership opportunities

Get involved in Orientations

Each year, Jump Start, Imagine UBC, and Collegia welcome thousands of new students to the University. These programs allow students to meet friends, learn about learning at UBC, and connect with professors from their Faculty. 

The University recruits current students to support Jump Start, Imagine UBC, Collegia, and other programs. Through these roles, you will connect with new students as they transition to their university experience.
