The organization I joined has completely shaped my college experience and transformed me as a leader. I have invested three years and currently am serving as the Chair of the organization.

The New Student Conference (NSC) is a mandatory orientation that all incoming students at A&M attend. The NSC is where students learn about the A&M college experience and meet new people, who are also joining the Aggie family.
The NSC serves as the official welcome to Texas A&M University. The Orientation Leaders (OLs), a part of the Aggie Orientation Leader Program, strive to create a welcoming and exciting environment for students, their family members, and their guests.
The NSC experience is truly what the participants put into it. As an OL, it is always rewarding to see people at the NSC smiling, laughing, and engaging with others around them, so be sure to bring this enthusiasm and participation to your NSC.
