"At the University of Delaware, UD students are proud to call themselves Blue Hens. The most proud, most spirited bunch might possibly be the New Student Orientation Leaders. The Office of New Student Orientation (NSO) employs 21 UD students who show loyalty to the university while spreading school spirit amongst the incoming freshmen.
One of the most iconic parts of the NSO Office is the backpack that each OL receives for the summer.The backpack is emblematic; when all of the students return to attend school in the fall semester, they know who their OLs are because of the backpack. In the summer months, OLs wear bright yellow polos, that way they stand out. However, those bright yellow polos are not exactly the most fashionable piece of clothing. The backpack, however, transcends the summer months.
The NSO Professional Staff came up with the idea of putting the iconic backpack on the back of the yellow T-shirt because we knew people would recognize it, and it was a fun way to reward the OLs with an end of the year gift! Thank you, CustomInk for giving us such a great T-Shirt!!!
