The 2013 Orientation Leader and Student Leadership Consultant applications will be available  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 this semester!

Student Leadership Consultants work in conjunction with the Office for Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs to assist with the development, coordination, and implementation of programs and services offered. They serve as ambassadors to the campus community and should represent the vision and values of the Office. Through continuous education and training, Student Leadership Consultants have the opportunity to expand their skills in the areas of customer service, public speaking, marketing, and program development.

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:

"Captain Planet is the titular character of the series. In the beginning of the series, Gaia assembles a modern-day team of "Planeteers" from several nations. When the modern-day Planeteers combine their powers to summon the elemental warrior, this incarnation takes on the appearance of a superhero, who takes on the superhero-like name of "Captain Planet." Captain Planet displays a wry sense of humor and often uses puns while taunting the show's cast of villains.

The Planeteers summon him when the need arises and when the crisis is too much for them to handle. When summoned, Captain Planet declares "By your powers combined, I am Captain Planet!". After the crisis is dealt with, Captain Planet disappears, and restores the powers to the Planeteer's rings. His parting phrase is, "The Power Is Yours", implying a duty and the ability of everyone to continue protecting the environment when he is gone.

Captain Planet's abilities are never clearly defined within the show, allowing him to always have a way of defeating his enemy and solving the problem before him. He can shape-shift and alter his structure to take on the properties of any element or material as well as transmuting other objects in a similar fashion. In various episodes he flies, has great strength, and displays telepathic/empathic abilities.

Captain Planet is weakened when he is in contact with pollutants, radiation, smog, etc. Like Gaia, he is bound to the physical realm of Earth. Although he is capable of flying into space, his powers and form begin to fade when he travels away from the planet. However, in one episode he is unable to "return to the Earth" completely as the two Planeteers who summoned him, and their rings, Earth and Heart, are stranded in space."
