I am calling on YOU, the DU community, to help me welcome the incoming freshmen class this fall at Move-In Day and Orientation by applying to become a Freshmen Orientation Leader! Every year new students come to campus and need our help and guidance as the first year at college can be difficult and full of transition as you all know. This is a great opportunity to be a mentor and leader to the newest members of our campus community. If you are chosen to be an OL, you will receive leadership training, get to move in early if you plan to live on campus, and have the chance to make a difference in the lives of your freshmen orientation group. Applications are available starting today and will be due the week we return from Spring Break on March 21st.
March 21: Application Due by 5pm to Director of Student Activities & Leadership, 2nd Floor Edgehill Mansion
April 7: Decisions are made by this date and everyone finds out whether or not they were chosen for the position
April 13: All OLs must meet for initial discussion about the position and what is expected; 10am Garden Room
May 16: All OLs must attend first training session and transition meeting with past OLs; 9am-12pm Garden Room
August 14: Move in date for OLs for 4 days of training before Orientation begins
August 20: Fall 2014 Move-In Day and ORIENTATION!
Before applying, please make sure you can attend all mandatory training sessions, which are critical to creating a great orientation for our freshmen. As you can see, you will start this semester and almost 2 weeks before school starts. Please make arrangements accordingly if chosen for the position.

We are holding ASDU Elections April 1 through April 3 for the academic year 2014-2015. Voting will be online through moodle. If you are interested in running we are still accepting applications until March 7, 2014. Please download the application here: ASDU Candidacy Application
Serving on student government is a rewarding experience - but also one that requires a significant commitment of time and energy.
All members of ASDU are required to hold regular office hours (will be scheduled at the start of each semester), attend weekly ASDU Regular meetings, attend ASDU-sponsored events and activities, plan and coordinate events according to the job description, and positively represent Dominican University and the student body at University committees and public events. Members of ASDU may be elected from the undergraduate day population; as ASDU members are stewards of the student activities budget, and since this budget is collected only from undergraduate day students, Pathways and Graduate students are not eligible to run for office.
Don't have time to be a part of ASDU but still want to help out every now and then? Want to still be involved and know what's happening but can't commit to coming to regular meetings? You can volunteer with ASDU to plan events and spread the word about what's happening on campus. If you want to get involved but don't know how, talk to Lauren about other opportunities available to you. Please contact the Director of Student Activities and Leadership, Lauren Castro, at 415-485-3282 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
