Meet the OWLs!

Contrary to popular belief, Grebel OWLs are not nocturnal birds of prey with talons, feathers, and binocular vision - this acronym actually stands for Orientation Week Leaders! Each year, 25 Grebel students serve as OWLs during Orientation Week in September. In this position, they are responsible for making first-year students feel welcome at Grebel and excited about university life! You may find them leading an activity, setting up or tearing down an event, participating in a game, or chatting with first-year students to get to know them better. This year’s OWLs will be wearing magenta T-shirts all week long, so you won’t have any trouble spotting them. They have been working hard over the past few months to make O-Week the best it can possibly be, and they are incredibly excited to meet all of our incoming Grebelites! If you have any questions, concerns, or just need someone to talk to, don’t hesitate to ask one of the OWLs - they will be happy to help you out!
