Red Caps are orientation student leaders, who are eager to help new students and their parents learn about life at the University of Hartford. A Red Cap is friendly, helpful, outgoing, enthusiastic, and wants to promote the University and the opportunities it has to offer.
Red Caps work during the early and late summer to welcome students and parents to the University of Hartford, engage them in conversation and activities, and connect them to peers and University resources. Through individual conversations, group activities, academic advising, and various programs, Red Caps help the incoming students and their parents become familiar and comfortable with the University. As a Red Cap you will have the opportunity to work closely with the University's faculty and staff in an informal setting.
Red Caps will not only become part of the Orientation program, but they also become a member of a very special family. Through training sessions, retreats, and fun activities, Red Caps form lasting friendships and memories that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
