Hall raisers are undergraduate students selected and trained to help incoming first-year and returning students as they move into the residence halls and ensure that their first few days at Salem State are enjoyable. They assist the residence life staff with opening of the halls, move-in, first day events, and other tasks. In exchange, students get to move in early for free, receive a T-shirt, and gain outstanding leadership experience. Each year, at least 35 students are selected to serve as hall raisers.
The ideal hall raiser possesses knowledge of campus services and resources, has a positive attitude and energetic nature, and is committed to helping students transition to college smoothly.
Applications for students seeking to serve as hall raisers will be available to download on this page. Any questions about the process can be directed to your assistant resident director.
