The Student Aides are undergraduate students who are responsible for a variety of programs throughout the year that assist new students in their transition from high school to college. Students that are currently remote learning can apply for the position and be remote this spring but must be available in person for all on-campus summer orientation sessions and related training sessions. These students are most visible during the Summer Orientation program where they use their creativity, responsibility, and communication abilities when working with new students and their parents/family members/guests. These students are available 24 hours a day during the orientation sessions and on a part-time basis during the school year. Throughout the fall semester Student Aides co-teach at least one section of The University Experience course EHS 120, and may assist with other on campus programs such as Bradley Convocation, the Academic Majors and Minors Fair and assisting transfer students with their entry into Bradley University.
During the spring semester, their primary responsibilities will be planning for summer orientation in small groups and potentially assisting transfer students with their entry into Bradley University. Throughout the year, random projects may be given by the Director of Orientation.
