"Within moments of stepping onto Gould Plaza, I was immersed into the vibrant energy of equally nervous and excited freshmen who were welcomed with warm smiles from our Orientation Leaders. Through our activities together, especially the Cohort Wars, I was able to get to know so many other students, some who I consider my closest friends today."- Seungmin Yi, Class of 2019

"My orientation leaders and group shaped the beginnings of my experience here at Stern. One of my OLs introduced me to student council and while I wasn't active at first, I'm now the class President."- Pranav Reddy, Class of 2018
