Campus Champion

New students and their families are in great hands with this year’s team of Orientation Assistants, and coordinating their efforts is Taylor Vermilyea, a senior from Catskill, N.Y. The hands-on experience in Advisement and Transition is providing this business economics major with practical skills for a vibrant future. Following six weeks as one of the Orientation coordinators, Taylor will set her sights on the fall semester, when she takes on the new position of Lead TA – overseeing a large staff of COR 101 teaching assistants who facilitate the intellectual and social integration of first-year students into the College’s academic community.
