Employment opportunities for students are plentiful in the Department of Residence Life. In addition to offering numerous full-time and professional positions, the department is one of the largest employers of students. On-campus employment offers the convenience of working for employers who are flexible with students’ class schedules, walking between work and class, and, (in many areas) the same vacations as the University (winter break, spring break, summer, etc.).
Explore some of the academic initiative events that occur regularly in our on-campus residences.
Dessert with a Dean, an ongoing event sponsored by Residence Life, welcomes a different Dean, Associate Dean, or Director from across campus to speak with students on a variety of topics ranging from passion areas, to life stories, to making a difference in the world. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to interact with Deans outside their offices or classrooms, and enjoy a free, delicious dessert spread!
