What is a Pacesetter?
The Pacesetters are a group of peer mentors who act as guides for incoming students during Orientation. Two of the most important responsibilities of a Pacesetter are to help students move smoothly through their college experience and adjust to college life at UofSC Aiken. They also answer questions, distribute information, and organize activities. In order to be successful orientation leaders, Pacesetters participate in an exciting and educational leadership development program.
There are two different kinds of Pacesetters. One type of Pacesetter, Freshmen Pacesetters, works with the New Student Orientation programs and the other type, Dual Freshmen & Transfer/Nontraditional Pacesetters, work with both the New Student and Transfer/Nontraditional programs. Both traditional and transfer students can apply for either position.
Pacesetters are some of UofSC Aiken's best student leaders who help lead small groups of new students through the orientation process. The following student leaders have been selected to be Pacesetters for summer 2022:
