Inspired by his own campus tour and orientation experience at IU Bloomington, sophomore informatics major Dedric Dennist decided to become a tour guide and orientation leader himself once he arrived on campus.
“My orientation leader made me feel really at home,” explained Dedric. “Going through that process made me want to join the First Year Experience program.” Dedric, who is also involved with Black Student Union, Read Student Government and the Freshman Action Team on campus, enjoys sharing his own experience with new students and re-creating the tour that inspired him to attend IU. “It’s always going to stick with me that I’m making a difference in these new students’ lives.”
