The Office of Orientation and Family Engagement is supported by the volunteer efforts of students from multiple disciplines and departments.

Week of Welcome (WOW!) Leaders at The University of Tampa are a group of energetic and dedicated students who assist in welcoming first-year students, transfer students and their families to campus. WOW! Leaders have a unique role in helping implement the orientation program through skills learned in a required training prior to fall orientation. Because they are some of the first faces incoming students and their families see, their role is critical to the experience. Applications are currently closed, but will open later in the academic year. If you are planning to apply, view the WOW! Leader qualifications and application process.

The University of Tampa Diplomats also play a vital role in the implementation of not only Week of Welcome, but Fall Weekend and commencement, the other two signature events of our office. UT Diplomats encompass the ability to serve, lead, empower and educate their peers. If you are interested in applying to become a Diplomat, visit their webpage for more information.
