Residence Life employs many students that serve Simpson College and resident students in important ways. Below is general information regarding the different kinds of positions and opportunities we have available. For more information, feel free to ask any member of the residence life staff. Applications for the fall semester are usually available during January of the semester before.
Community Advisors (CAs) are current students who are a key component in creating a successful Residence Life experience for our residential students. There are 18 traditional hall CAs (6 in Kresge, 6 in Barker, 3 in Buxton, and 2 in Picken).
The House Assistant (HA) stipend is equal to $3500 for the year, divided into 10 equal monthly payments. Generally, the five House Assistants are members (1 each) of the five college-owned fraternity and sorority buildings. The college-owned Greek buildings are Alpha Tau Omega (ATO), Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE), Lambda Chi Alpha (LXA), Kappa Theta Psi (KTP), and Kappa Kappa Gamma (KKG).
Please download an application and reference forms. Applications are due to the Student Development office on Friday, Feb. 1. When turning in your application, you will be able to sign up for an interview time with our selection committee.
For Juniors and Seniors only:
Community Advisors in the Apartments (8 positions)
The department also has CAs in the apartments, and the job responsibilities for those students are slightly different than a traditional hall CA. Each apartment building has 1 CA except Station Square and Clinton, which have 2 due to the size of the buildings. The CA stipend is equal to $4400, divided into 10 equal monthly payments. One full year of Residence Life staff experience is preferred, but not required.
