2015 Summer Student Admissions Representative Application

BU Admissions is looking for Summer Student Admissions Representatives!

What is a Student Admissions Representative?

Boston University Admissions welcomes over 25,000 visitors to campus each summer at the Alan and Sherry Leventhal Center. Each Student Admissions Representative will share their personal experiences with about 2,500 people throughout the summer. Student Admissions Representatives are dedicated, enthusiastic students who enjoy sharing their positive experiences of BU with prospective students and families. BU Admissions is looking for undergraduate students who are not only sincere and personable, but committed to professional development and attention to detail.  This is a full time position Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Student Admissions Representatives are responsible for:

  • Greeting visitors and assisting them with their visit to the University by answering questions, providing contact information, scheduling and adjusting reservations, making suggestions of things to do and see while on-campus and in Boston, and assisting with administrative duties as assigned by a supervisor or a Summer Coordinator
  • Leading hour-long walking tours of the University—often twice a day during our busiest times
  • Answering incoming phone calls and emails
  • You will also serve as a student speaker in our information sessions


Admissions is looking for enthusiastic, committed and articulate undergraduate students who enjoy working with people and who would like to share their enthusiasm for BU with prospective students and their families.

In this role, a student is the first impression of BU, and as such must be in good academic standing throughout their tenure in the position.  A minimum of a 2.5 overall GPA is required, and students on academic probation will not be able to continue serving in Admissions in any capacity.  In addition, all students must be in good judicial and financial standing with Boston University for the duration of their employment in the Admissions Office.  Admissions will conduct periodic checks with the appropriate student services offices to verify that these conditions are being met. Finally, students cannot hold another on-campus, paid position throughout the summer even if it does not conflict with work hours.

Students are expected to be available in the spring semester for a pre-training meeting in March, unless they are currently studying abroad. Graduate students and undergraduates graduating in May 2015 are not eligible to apply.

Dates of Employment:

Tuesday, May 19, 2013 – Friday, August 28, 2015
Students may take 6 unpaid vacation days during the period of June 15th through August 14th.  The Student Admissions Representative role is a demanding commitment; students may not be employed by any other Boston University office or department between May 18th and August 30th, 2015.

Mandatory Training Dates:

Friday, March 20th 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Tuesday, May 19th – Friday, June 12th 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.


  • $9.75/hr
  • On-campus housing from Monday, May 18 – Friday, August 28, 2014. Summer Student Admissions Representatives are required to live in on campus housing.
