ADM: Tour Guide (S9986A)

Tour Guides are a very important part of the Bates Admission Office. They provide prospective students and families with a personal glimpse of life here. Often, that glimpse is the deciding factor in a prospective student’s decision to apply to and enroll at Bates.

EXPERIENCE: At least one semester of volunteer admissions related activities
EXPERIENCE: Student must be comfortable greeting the public and be comfortable speaking in front of large groups of people. Must be able to walk backwards and talk
Specific responsibilities include, but may not be limited to:
Tour Guides must maintain enthusiasm and energy, plus have a willingness to answer all questions in a diplomatic fashion. Tour Guides should have a good overall grasp of life at Bates.

Providing a personal perspective of campus life is an absolute necessity in the Tour Guides’ job.
