Be a Senior Interviewer!! — Info Session 2/17; App due 2/29

The Office of Admission is beginning the hiring process for the 2016-2017 Senior Interviewer position.  As many of you are aware, this position would allow you to leave your legacy at Wesleyan and help shape the Class of 2021. Some of the responsibilities include:

  • Interviewing prospective students in the summer and/or fall
  • Co-leading information sessions with Admission Deans to prospective students and families
  • Representing the Office of Admission and Wesleyan at various on-campus events
  • Other office tasks as needed such as data entry and answering phone calls/emails

We are also pleased to announce a new opportunity to join us in the summer of 2016 as a Senior Admission Intern. This position will offer the opportunity for rising seniors to engage not only in the regular functions of the senior interviewer position, but also to spend the summer learning about specific admission programs, such as campus events, international admission, athletics, communications, transfer students, tour guides, senior interviewers, and others, and the admission profession and higher education as a whole. You must commit to the summer internship AND the fall position if you are interested in the summer.

We will have two open information sessions on Wednesday, February 17, from 12-1pm and 4pm-5pm, where we will go over details of the position and answer questions. Current Senior Interviewers will speak about their own experiences and be there to answer your questions.  Both meetings will be held at the Office of Admission. These information sessions are not required and you do not have to attend the entire session, but if you are unable to attend and have any questions, please ask any current Senior Interviewer ( or contact Tara Lindros, Associate Dean of Admission, at Please RSVP for these sessions if you think you might attend at — these sessions may be subject to change and we need to be able to contact you.
