First-Year Orientation Student Leadership


Eleanor Ickes

Head Orientation Counselor for Donner House

Neurobiology, Mellon College of Science, 2025
Eleanor Ickes (she/her) is a rising senior from Lexington/Florence, KY, studying Neurobiology. Inspired by her experience as an Orientation Counselor last year for Stever, she is so excited to be with Donner House this year. Once Orientation is over — and if she’s not at the lab or the gym —, you can find Eleanor dancing, reading a good book, or finding new music to add to her many Spotify playlists!
