Emily Krechel has worked within orientation, transition, and retention for more than nine years: as a student leader, graduate intern, and professional. As the Director of New Student and Transition Programs at Elon University, Emily and her team oversee a four-day welcome week orientation that involves 18 Head Staff members, 120 Orientation Leaders, and 200+ Orientation Move-in Helpers.

Prior to working at Elon University, Emily served as the Associate Director of New Student Services at UC Berkeley. It was there that her passion and love for student leader development and transformation flourished.
