Paid On-Campus Opportunity: Welcome Day Leaders

Each Fall, approximately 1,500 – 1,700 new students join our Tommie community.  It is a gigantic transition for these students.  Welcome Day Leaders (WDLs) play a critical role in creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for this experience by assisting students in building connections, engaging campus events and resources, and understanding and supporting university values.

WDLs gain significant experience in leading others, teamwork, communication, and planning.  These skills will serve any WDL in their future careers. The university’s commitment is to return to in-person Welcome Days for the 2021-2022 academic year. We are looking for a vibrant team of Welcome Days Leaders ready to set the stage for an exciting year at St. Thomas, and to get our new students started strong. Apply for this paid position here.
