Apply to be a Welcome Week Leader



Thursday, March 7th | 12:00-1:00pm | Kimmel Center, Room 703
Thursday, March 7th | 7:00pm-8:00pm | Kimmel Center, Room 703

Come to an information session to learn more about the position, the application and interview process, as well as tips on how to successfully go through the application and group interview process from our very own Welcome Week Leaders from this past Welcome Week!

1. I’m currently studying away – can I still apply?
Yes! You can still submit an application. On the application, there is a place to indicate you are studying away and we will schedule a skype interview with you.

2. What is the selection process like?
Apply for the position at this link by Sunday, March 17 @11:59pm EST. You will be notified if you are invited for an interview by March 20. All applicants will be notified of the decision during the week of April 1st.

3. It doesn’t seem like my vibe. The WW Leaders all seem extroverted. Would I fit in?
Some of our leaders love dancing on the Kimmel stairs to hype people up and some of our leaders prefer one-on-one conversations with new students nervous about starting college. Whether you’re hype or chill, we’re looking for student leaders who want to make an impact on new students. We truly believe that anyone can be a Welcome Week Leader.

4. How available do I need to be as a WW Leader?
It is mandatory to participate in the WW Leader Training that occurs Wednesday, August 21-Friday, August 23 from 9am-6pm on campus. During Welcome Week (Sunday, August 25 – Saturday, August 31), you must have flexible availability as you will be assigned to work at least four 5-hour long shifts for the exciting events going on.

5. Can I be a WW Leader and an RA/CA/TA/School Orientation Leader?
Because of time conflicts with training and new student preparation, you are not able to serve in both the Welcome Week Leader and RA/CA/TA roles at the same time. The ability to serve as both a School Orientation Leader and Welcome Week Leader varies by school. If you are interested in any of these positions, we suggest going through the application process for all of them and you can let us know later which position you select.

6. Is there any compensation for the Welcome Week Leader position?
The Welcome Week Leader position is completely voluntary, although all meals will be provided during training and during each of the 5-hour shifts you are assigned. For all students living on campus in Fall 2019, you will be able to move-in early to your room. If you are a Welcome Week Leader for one year and apply for an elevated position the following year as a Captain or Chair, then there will be a stipend for these positions.
