Clayton State University’s Laker Orientation Team recently traveled to Charlotte, N.C., to attend the Southern Regional Orientation Workshop (SROW), where they participated in several workshops and conference initiatives.
More than 2,000 people from 82 institutions across the southeast region gathered at the University of North Carolina to learn about other orientation programs, student leadership, civility, teamwork, diversity, family transition and showcase school spirit. Laker Orientation Leaders (LOL) prepared for months to represent Clayton State University at SROW.
Returning Laker Orientation Leaders Rasheen Hunter and Joshua Davis competed in a case study where they were asked to discuss different level of responses for potential orientation emergency situations. Hunter, along with fellow LOLs Ta-Mia McGruder and Samantha Lapier, also presented an education session called, “Pass the Intersection of Diversity, Cross the Finish Line of Community,” where they discussed how to move past diversity exploration to forming a community.
The LOLs also competed in a banner, t-shirt, spirit, service, and performance competition. The Laker Orientation Team proudly represented their institution and built connections with other orientation leaders.
