ADM: Admission Senior Fellow (S9989C)

Summary, Scope, and Responsibilities


Senior Fellows serve as the primary student faces in the Office of Admission and represent the wider Bates community to prospective students and families. These students serve as leaders on campus and are often involved in multiple areas of our academic community and campus life. The Fellow must demonstrate dedication and passion for Bates and must serve as an ambassador for the school. Following preliminary training with Admission staff regarding admission procedures and Bates related information, the student will work closely with staff members to co-lead information sessions, conduct interviews for both domestic and international applicants and provide informative interview reports, correspond with prospective students and families through a variety of mediums, interact with prospective families and campus visitors on a daily basis, and provide additional assistance during admission-sponsored events.

Senior Fellows will be expected to work for 6-10 hours per week along with a number of Saturday mornings over both the fall and winter semesters. Opportunities to work during school breaks and during short term will also be available. The Senior Fellow position provides students with the unique opportunity to further develop communication and interpersonal skills in a professional setting while presenting Bates in a friendly and honest way.
