Meet your Orientation Leader!


Jessica "Jess" Hubert

Jessica is senior English major and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies minor from Ellicott City, Maryland. She is involved in many activities at Gettysburg College, and the list keeps getting longer. Being on the executive board of the Campus Activities Board (CAB) and a brother of the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity, she is all over the place. If there is a time to relax, she’ll probably be hanging out with friends in the Junction or Musselman Library. She cannot wait to meet the new students and get the Orientation party started!
