Tower Team Leaders

The core of the orientation experience features Tower Team Leaders. These student leaders complete over 90 hours of training on how to support new students through their transition to Belmont during the fall semester.

In August, over 160 Tower Team Leaders guide each Tower Team of 10 or more new students through Welcome Week -- the exciting week of social, spiritual, intellectual, and physical activities.
