Each year, the Office of Student Development (OSD) employs numerous students to help in our mission of providing exemplary service and support to the approximately 6,000 students living in the University residence halls.
Resident Assistants provide support for the students in the halls. Peer Advisors and Academic Center Staff provide in-hall academic support, and Security Monitors help ensure the safety of students living in the residence halls. Additionally, central office staff provides invaluable administrative support to our professional staff.
A typical workday for an OSD employee may involve anything from planning a social program in the halls, managing and interpreting a complex database, talking with students about picking a major, leading a team meeting, designing a marketing plan, tutoring physics, to helping students through a bout of homesickness. Our student employees gain useful and valuable skills in communication, advising, time management and organization, many of which help them go on to successful internships and post-graduation employment.
Our positions have competitive salaries and attentive, helpful supervisors. Applications are open year-round. We encourage work-study students to apply for all positions. Additionally, there are several leadership opportunities in the halls that are non-paid, including Student Orientation Staff (S.O.S), Peer Review Board, and student Mentors.
