ADM: Tour Guide (S9986A)
Summary, Scope, and Responsibilities
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.
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. We do not expect tour guides/interns to know every detail about the school, as they will receive training from admissions officers. Providing a personal perspective of campus life is an absolute necessity in the Tour Guides’ job.
