Opportunities to Get Involved with International Student Services

International Student Group Leader

We are looking for responsible, friendly, and outgoing returning students to be Group Leaders and help us with the International Student Arrival Program. One important thing to note is that signing up to be a Group Leader is NOT the same as being a Welcome Week Guide.

The dates of the International Student Arrival Program for Fall 2018 are Monday, August 13 through Thursday, August 16. You will need to arrive to Erie by Sunday, August 12 at the latest. We will start first thing in the morning on Monday, August 13, and will need everyone’s help at that point. If you have an on-campus housing contract for the fall, you can move into your room on Saturday, August 11. If you arrive before that date, you will have to stay in a hotel until Saturday. If you live off-campus, you will need to make arrangements with your landlord to move in early.

Being a Group Leader is a volunteer position and is not paid. However, your Monday-Thursday meals will be covered while you are helping us and you'll get a t-shirt!

To apply to be a Group Leader, please fill out the application on BehrendSync. Candidates will go through an interview for selection, and will be informed via email if they are selected to be a Group Leader.

We are looking forward to welcoming all of our new students next fall, and would love your help! Group Leaders play a huge part in making Behrend feel like home for our first-year students!
