The University is home to over 45,000 students and spans over an impressive 2,307 acres.

While professors have had to shift teaching methods to accommodate for online studies, so has the Orientation Department.

Hear it From Them

"With myInterview, we were able to expand the opportunity of becoming an Orientation Leader to individuals who may have been too shy to complete our former process. The role of Orientation Leader typically attracts extroverted candidates, but because the applicants were able to perform the video interview on their own time, they felt less pressure in the moment and were ultimately stellar candidates. We hired more candidates that may not have passed the first round of interviews in the past. We are confident that with proper training, they will be excellent Team Leaders. The quality of our orientation leaders has changed, for the better."

- Cam Hoyt, Program Coordinator of Orientation Programs
