Become a Summer Conference Assistant
Summer Conference Assistants (SCA) are undergraduate students who live on campus throughout the summer and assist residence life summer students and conference guests. SCA responsibilities include coordinating check-in and check-out procedures throughout the summer, distributing keys, staffing a 24-hour security desk, and working on special projects within residence life.
SCAs are housed in Marsh and Atlantic Halls throughout the summer, where they aid with orientation, Student Academic Support Services Summer Program, Upward Bound, a variety of conference guests, and summer students. SCAs are paid hourly for 20-35 hours per week, serve on duty during weekdays, and develop bulletin boards and basic programming for their areas. In exchange, summer conference assistants receive a space on campus and a partial meal plan for the summer.
