"The orientation of Fall 2012 was very organized. I was enthusiastic to volunteer with such a talented group of people. The orientation was very welcoming and the atmosphere of the orientation was lively. New comers were very energetic and passionate. It motivated me to go ahead and help them whenever they needed me."
