We are excited to introduce some of the new members of NODA in February 2019!
Learn why they joined NODA and what they are excited about within the Association:
Graduate Coordinator of Student Activities
Saint Vincent College
"I discovered NODA due to my current assistantship at Saint Vincent College. Part of my job is to assist in overseeing the Orientation Team and work with them on planning Orientation days, Move-in day, and the other events that Orientation hosts. This coming NODA will in fact be my first and I am very excited for it! My supervisor and students talk about how much they loved their experience at NODA, which drew me into being a part of this community outside of my requirements for work. I am excited to see the behind the scenes community that is involved in making Orientations run as smoothly as possible!"
Admissions Counselor, Coordinator for New Student Programs
Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville
"I began a new position coordinating our freshman onboarding program, Springboard to Success where I work directly with our orientation leaders. Through working with this program, I was introduced to NODA, and I am excited about collaborating with my colleagues and sharing ideas and best practices. I believe very strongly in orientation, and I want to learn better ways to accommodate our ever growing and ever changing population on campus."
Lani Pati Coordinator of Student Involvement, Leadership & OrientationWestminster College
"I first discovered NODA through my Director and the role I play on campus. I am excited to be part of NODA this year and looking forward to an awesome experience. "
