Hiring Tour Guides - Undergraduate Admissions

The student tour guide application is open. Please share this opportunity with students whom you feel would be excellent representatives of the University and your department. There is more than one successful guide “type”. Some prospective students and visitors connect with cheerful, effusive guides; others prefer polite, friendly, yet more reserved ambassadors. Admissions is keenly interested in students who come from diverse backgrounds. Fluency in more than one language is desired, not required.

The position pays $13/hour and is open to all undergraduate students. Tour guides usually work two to four hours per week, except during the spring rush in March and April, where they can work upwards of 19.5 hours per week. Full-time employment—40 hours—is available during the summer and breaks. If students want more hours throughout the academic year, there are opportunities to serve on the Admissions Front Desk team.

Please refer students to the following contacts:
