Spring 2019 Residence Life Staff Application

  • Spring 2019 Residence Life Staff Applications Due November 12, 2018

Residence Life is currently seeking Apartment Manager applicants for the Spring 2019 semester to fill an anticipated vacancy in Waitt Hall


Minimum Requirements of New and Returning Residence Life Team Candidates

  • Enrolled at Morningside College with at least 12 credit hours.
  • Maintain both a semester and cumulative GPA of 2.25.
  • Currently live or have lived for at least one semester in a residence hall or apartment at Morningside College.
  • Have completed a minimum of 12 college credit hours.

As a candidate for a position on the Residence Life staff for Spring 2019, it is important to remember the following:

  • To build the strongest and most effective residence life team possible, placements will be determined by the Office of Residence Life.  There is no guarantee to which floor (freshman, traditional, or themed) or building (Dimmitt, Roadman, The Plex, or Apartments) where you will be placed.  Placements will be announced after final appointment agreements are returned, sometime late November or early December.
  • This is a job interview.  Please treat it as such.  This is great practice for honing professional interview skills and crafting your professional image for job opportunities and graduate applications post-graduation.
  • The Head Resident, Head Apartment Manager, Resident Assistant, and Apartment Manager positions are paid student leadership positions, and therefore considered student employment.  The Resident Assistant/Apartment Manager appointment may impact the student’s financial aid award for the academic year in which they are employed.  As each student’s individual financial aid award is unique to his/her situation, all student staff are strongly encouraged to meet with the Student Financial Planning Office.
