Spend the Summer in Salem!

Become a Summer Conference Assistant

Summer Conference Assistants (SCA) are undergraduate students that 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 will aid with orientation, Student Academic Support Services Summer Program, Upward Bound, a variety of conference guests, and summer students. SCAs are paid hourly for 28-35 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.

Become a Summer Maintenance Assistant

Summer Maintenance Assistants (SMA) are undergraduate students that live on campus throughout the summer and assist residence life by preparing buildings and performing maintenance work. SMA responsibilities include painting, sweeping and mopping, moving furniture, washing walls, replacing lights, and other tasks as assigned. We also hire maintenance supervisors to oversee the SMA staff, coordinate their schedule, and ensure that all projects are completed appropriately.
 
Housing will be determined based on when residence halls are open and will require moving throughout the summer. These moves allow us to be sure all areas are ready to be occupied for the fall.
