The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is hiring undergraduate campus Tour Guides to start at the end of the Winter 2013 semester. We are specifically looking for Tour Guides with Spring 2013/Summer 2013 availability, but also have openings for guides who will return in the Fall 2013 term. Tour Guides serve as the public face of Michigan to prospective students and their families, as well as visiting dignitaries, alumni, and community organizations. During tours, guides show visitors around Central Campus, answer questions about student life, and share their personal experiences at Michigan. Tour Guides should have good public speaking skills, be knowledgeable about the University, and are expected to be punctual and reliable. This position is an excellent opportunity for current undergraduate students to hone their communication skills, promote the University, and help prospective students in their college search.
If you know of a student who meets the desired qualities, please share with them the application information below and encourage them to take advantage of this amazing opportunity. If you would like to personally nominate a student, please feel free to send your recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org. Prospective applicants are also encouraged to attend an Informational Meeting from 5:30 – 6:30 pm on Thursday, January 10th in the Student Activities Building (SAB), Maize & Blue Auditorium to learn more about being a Tour Guide!
Tour Guide Applications can be found online at the University of Michigan Office of Undergraduate Admissions website. All applications must be submitted by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, January 16th. For more information, please see: http://www.admissions.umich.edu/drupal/tour-guides.
