Got SOL?


“Meeting students and helping them navigate their new college lives has been game-changing for me,” says Kendyll Dicker, a former Student Orientation Leader (SOL) and current Student Ambassador at UC Blue Ash. SOLs are not only able to greet incoming students at orientation and help them learn more about our college, they also develop skills that will transfer into any career. Communication, public speaking, problem solving, and leadership are just a few of the lifelong skills that SOLs will gain, while also getting paid!

Applications for this exciting position are open now! Typically, about 20-22 students are accepted. They are chosen through a rigorous interviewing process that begins with group interviews and ends with a 15-minute, one-on-one interview with a staff member. Chris Dziekan, Student Life manager who oversees orientation and the SOL program, encourages students from all walks of life to apply. He describes the position as “intense but rewarding.”
