Peer Leaders


Each year, select students are trained to serve as orientation peer leaders. Peer leaders are specifically trained to introduce new students to campus life.

Peer leaders provide First Year Orientation students, Transfer Orientation students, and Family Orientation attendees with a structured comprehensive introduction to the range of opportunity offered at Northeastern Illinois University. In addition, peer leaders play an integral role in assisting students with their transition to college. Peer leaders are paid as student employees.
