Our Orientation Team is made up of student leaders and professional staff members, whose primary goal is to assist students with their transition to LIU Brooklyn. Our student leaders serve as mentors and resources to students and their families and can answer virtually every question you have about college life and LIU Brooklyn.

LIU Brooklyn takes great pride in our student leaders. Please take the time to get to know them; it will be nice to recognize a familiar face when you come to Orientation.
