Orientation leaders chosen at Tech
Sixteen Louisiana Tech students have been chosen as 2010’s Orientation Student Leaders.
OSLs work to welcome incoming freshmen to the university throughout the year, including summer orientation sessions for freshmen and transfer students. This year’s candidates were chosen out of 65 hopefuls after a two-week application process.
Travis Napper, director of the Orientation and Student Programs, said these students are the face of Tech and will work with incoming students to bridge the gap between high school and college.

Alexandria: Justin Beasley, a sophomore history major; Tori Close, a sophomore speech education major
