The 2013 Orientation Leader applications will be available in the spring, beginning on January 29, 2013. Please visit the Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs website in the future for updates. Look out for our 1990's themed advertisements early next semester!
The Office of Student Engagement & Multicultural Affairs employs 20 enthusiastic and resourceful students as orientation leaders to assist with summer new student and family orientation. The orientation leader staff will be representative of our diverse undergraduate population. When selecting candidates, we will be looking for a balance of academic year, areas of study, and cultural diversity.
1990's Wiki Trivia:
“Double Dare is a children's game show, originally hosted by Marc Summers, that aired on Nickelodeon. The show combines trivia questions with occasionally messy "physical challenges". It is often credited with putting the then-fledgling network on the map, and ranked #29 in TV Guide's list of the 50 Greatest Game Shows of All Time.
The show originated from the WHYY-TV studios in Philadelphia in 1986. In 1987, the show temporarily moved to New York City for a special weekend edition called Super Sloppy Double Dare. The show returned to Philadelphia in 1988; by then, Viacom syndicated the show to independent stations & affiliates of the young Fox network. Beginning in January 1989, more episodes of Super Sloppy Double Dare were produced (during which time Nickelodeon began airing reruns of the previous year's syndicated episodes). Tapings began in Philadelphia, but later that year was moved to Universal Studios in Orlando. The show moved to Nickelodeon Studios in 1990, where it then became Family Double Dare, and it remained that until its cancellation in 1992. The final episodes aired in 1993.
Reebok (British Knights or Skechers in later episodes) was a major sponsor of the show throughout its run, and every contestant and stage crew member (including Summers) wore a pair of the company's shoes.”
