First Year Experience

UCF's O-Team, or Orientation Team, is comprised of students who are dedicated to the university and to helping others. O-Team members facilitate the numerous First Time in College and Transfer student orientation sessions that take place at UCF. O-Teamers assist our brand new Knights with advising, discovering on-campus resources, and class registration.

The O-Team is a very prestigious organization at UCF. Many of the members are a part of the Student Government Association, UCF agencies, and other campus organizations. It is also a paid position, and students that are accepted will be required to work during summer, fall and spring orientation sessions.


Selection to be a member of UCF's O-Team is an honor and a rewarding opportunity for both personal and professional growth. Each year the Office of First Year Experience selects a group of mature and dedicated undergraduate student leaders to assist with implementing University orientation programs. During this memorable experience, O-Team members serve as peer educators, peer advisors, group facilitators, performers, resource contacts, and role models to new freshmen, transfer students, and their families in their adjustment and transition to UCF. O-Team members will learn and practice specific skills through problem-solving strategies.

Students are required to take a two credit hour class during the Spring Semester. During this class students will learn about diversity, communication skills, and leadership techniques to prepare students for the summer ahead.
