Watch our video for a tutorial on how to apply to be a Student Leader!
Listing interest in a specific position on the application does not guarantee a student will be offered an individual interview for that position. Supervisors will consider the application materials, group interview, individual interview, and overall team composition for each position when making hiring decisions. This year, the process will be entirely remote (online) with the possible exception of some individual interviews.
We encourage you to attend one of the information sessions to learn more about the process. Below you will find a timeline, job descriptions, and instructions on accessing the application information on Handshake. If you have questions about the process please contact the Coordinator for Residential, Fraternity and Sorority life, Amanda Dermer.
The Student Leader application opens November 2nd on Handshake!
If you are interested in learning more about becoming a student leader, we encourage you to attend an information session.
