Connect Leaders

Connect Leaders work throughout the summer and the academic year to create a welcoming and inclusive community for our newest Skyhawks. Each new student will be assigned to a Connect Family before the start of the school year and will meet as a group throughout Connect Week and your first semester! Connect Leaders serve as resources for new students who are making the transition from their previous environment to the diverse spiritual, academic, intellectual and social culture of Point University.

You can look forward to spending time with your Connect Family over meals, in orientation sessions, and competing in Connect Week activities like Glow in the Dark Volleyball, Dodgeball, and more!
