Student Leadership Opportunities for 2011-12
How to GUARENTEE your student gets the FULL Collegiate Experience!
Do you remember those energetic, knowledgeable Connections Links? How about meeting your student’s Resident Assistant on move-in day?
On December 1, applications will be available on the Student Activities myPCT portal site for students to apply for student leadership positions:
We have found that MOST students who become Penn College student leaders grow, develop, and take away an experience that is “life changing!”
Prior leadership experience is not required. So encourage your student to apply for for one or more of these exciting opportunities.
Community Assistants (CAs) are student leaders who live off campus and serve as a resource to off-campus students. They plan programs and activities for off-campus students and act as links between the College administration and the off-campus community. CAs serve as role models to the off-campus student community and as liaisons for students and landlords.
Benefits, which are for the academic semester year (August 2011 through May 2012), include a $2,000 scholarship to be distributed in four $500 installments (two each semester).

Links are Penn College students hired to assist with the coordination and implementation of the Connections program, Penn College’s orientation program. They also work during Welcome Weekend for new students in both the fall and spring semesters. Through small and large group interactions, Links help prepare first-year, transfer, and nontraditional students and their guests to become members of the Penn College community.
Benefits are for the summer (May 2011 – August 2011), which include on-campus housing, food while Connections and Welcome Weekends are in session, Fitness Center membership, and full-time pay with occasional overtime wages during the Connections sessions.
