RACER Leaders Start Their Season Off Right

2019 UNOH RACER Leaders

Prior to joining the UNOH family, future Racers have to attend Orientation, move to campus, and process the transition of becoming a college student. This can be an overwhelming experience for many individuals, which is why UNOH formed the RACER Leaders program. RACER stands for Racer Ambassador Cultivating Educational Relationships, which describes the student ambassadors’ mission. 

RACER Leaders serve for a full academic year and come from a variety of UNOH majors in all colleges. The leaders work events to aid the students’ experience both in and out of college. May is the start of Orientation season and the time where RACER Leaders get to meet hundreds of incoming students.

Hannah Lykins explains why she decided to return for a secon season as a RACER Leader, “I like being able to talk to new or incoming students about what our university has to offer. Then months after Orientation, students telling you that you made an impact or something we said helped them once they were on campus.”

New leaders are joining every year and their excitement is evident. Josh Schrock mentioned, “Personally I am most excited about meeting new people. While being a RACER Leader I hope that I can get new students excited to come to UNOH, as well as teach new students about the vast opportunities that this university has to offer.”

The first event for this year’s RACER Leaders is Orientation for students starting at UNOH in June.  If you would like to join the RACER Leader program, reach out to them at racerleader@unoh.edu and check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8304vMra_A
