NODA Leader
Leslie Page
Associate Director
University of South Florida

NODA Position: Co-chair for the Graduate Student Network  and serving on the Advisory Committee for NODA Internships.

Why was getting involved in NODA important to you?

NODA is THE organization for Orientation professionals- it's given me the opportunity to learn a great deal about orientation and transition, but most importantly it's helped me build a wonderful network of Orientation professionals.

When and why did you get involved with NODA?
I joined NODA in 2004 when I was in graduate school. I didn't have an assistantship in Orientation, but it was an area of interest for me so I kept in touch with the area through my membership.

Why should a member consider a leadership position in NODA?
Being in a leadership role in NODA allows you to give back to an organization that is guaranteed to help you as well. You meet people, help others in the association, and gain new skills for yourself along the way.

What have you gained from your leadership positions in NODA?
I have the exciting opportunity to work with the Graduate Students within the organization, so the most exciting part is learning why they love orientation and seeing them join the field as a professional. In our network, once people get in to the field they often come back and help with GSN events so we get to see what they're doing after graduate school as well.

What is your favorite NODA related memory?
My favorite NODA memory is probably attending OPI in Boston in 2008. That's where my connections to others in NODA began and I love reuniting with these wonderful people (especially the Beacon family) every year at NODAC.
