III. Position Placement Interest

All applicants (except Michels and Bergstrom): an agreement between Residential Ed and Housing and our program allows you to have a room in the hall where your position is, and exempts you (and those you choose to live with) from the housing process. 

Please read the position descriptions below and then list the halls/positions for which you are applying, in order of interest. Please list only those that you are interested in.  Leave the other choices blank.

Upperclass Team Positions

Currently, students work with three or four other team members to serve all upperclass students. Team members play a special role in Michels Hall, where they plan and lead reflection sessions with the suites on the topic of their service experiences. For all upperclass students, ALIVE Team members plan 2-3 programs per month designed to meet the spiritual and vocational needs of older students. Team members will also work on individual projects as needs arise. Programs take place both in central locations on campus and within upperclass residence halls.

One person on the upperclass hall team will be designated as the team leader. This person acts as a liaison with the supervisor and is responsible for running the office hours and ensuring that all tasks are being completed. He/She can expect to put in an additional hour per week for this position.

Students will preferably live in Michels, MMM or VMC. Our program can arrange housing in MMM and VMC for team members and their roommates.  However, applicants wishing to live in Michels Hall are required to apply through the usual process with REH.

These position descriptions may be adjusted to meet the changing needs of upperclass students.

First Year Residence Hall Positions (Bergstrom, Burke, Mad/Lor, Sensenbrenner)

These positions will involve the opportunity to mentor first year student leaders, ALIVE Team Apprentices, creating a ministry team of one student coordinator with two apprentices. Click here for more information on apprentices.

Although it is not required, preference may be given to applicants who are willing to live in their hall. Bergstrom applicants, however, will not be able to live in Bergstrom. If not living in the assigned hall, student coordinators are expected to be actively present to the residents and are on their own in the housing selection process.

Student Team Coordinator

This position is open to students who are currently serving as ALIVE Team coordinators, or who have completed a year as an ALIVE Team coordinator in the past.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: acting as a mentor/liaison to the apprentices, supervising the apprentice-led project, observing and evaluating hall programs, sending ALIVEwaves, and assisting in training and retreat planning.
