UBC Orientation and Transition Leadership opportunities

Apply to be a student leader in Orientations.

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 the academic experience at UBC, and connect with professors from their faculty.

UBC 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.

For questions about the positions or more, please email orientations.info@ubc.ca.
