BGR Team Leaders

Team Leaders

New students are assigned to teams during BGR, and each team has a “Team Leader.” Team Leaders, known around BGR as “TLs,” are typically students who were deeply impacted during their BGR experience in previous years and want to give it back by helping new students have a wonderful BGR experience. Selected early in the spring semester, they train up until the week of BGR on mentoring new students, while being mentored themselves by Team Supervisors. TLs are the face of the BGR program and spend the entire BGR week with their new students. As an added bonus, TLs make long-lasting relationships with their new students and peers.

Team Leaders must return to campus by Aug. 10, 2018, for training.

Team Leaders International

Team Leaders International, more popularly known as “TLI’s,” are Team Leaders for BGR International. They lead new international student groups throughout orientation, helping to acclimate them to the U.S. and Purdue. TLIs usually become one of the first friends that international students make at Purdue. TLIs go through TL training and additional training that helps them understand the needs of new international students.

Team Leaders International must return to campus by Aug. 8, 2018, for training.
