Meet the Orientation Coordinators!

My name is Domota Byrd and I graduate May 2022! I am a political science major from Silver Spring, Maryland. I am also the president of The Black Student Union, and I love to play volleyball!  

I cannot wait for this year's orientation.  I am looking forward to meeting all the new incoming students and showing them the life of a Hood student!

Hi! My name is Tori.  I am a senior this year and will be graduating in May with a Bachelors in Elementary and Special Education. I am from Ellicott City, Maryland, but I live on campus at Hood.

Hood is really home to me, and I cannot wait to share my love for the school with the incoming students this year. I'm excited to help create a great orientation to welcome our new students.

I am very involved on campus and have a love for music. I am in both the Hood Choir and the Chamber Choir, involved in Hood College Student Musical Theatre, and take vocal lessons through Hood. I can easily be found hanging out with friends in the residence halls, in Whitaker or singing my heart out in Brodbeck and Carson Cottage!
