Senior Interviewers play an integral role in the shaping of the first-year class, from representing Wesleyan through anecdotes and experiences to evaluating prospective students and, for a select number, the opportunity to read first-year applications.

SI’s are expected to work approximately 8 hours per week and every other Saturday morning during the fall semester, including Fall Break but not Thanksgiving.  Your hours are predicated on your academic schedule and availability, and the rate of pay is $12/hour.  There is an opportunity to work all or part of the summer on a full time schedule, and the pay for the summer months is $14/hour and fully subsidized housing on campus.

Informal information sessions about the program for those seeking to learn more are available 12:15-1:15pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 26 & 27 in the Office of Admission, and will include current SI’s to answer your questions.  You need not attend for the entire hour.

All members of the Class of 2020 are invited to apply, including those currently abroad.  In addition to the written application there is two-stage interview process.  Group interviews, including a short presentation from each candidate, will take place from Sunday, April 7 to Tuesday, April 9.  For those individuals selected, a second interview (about an hour, 30 minutes with an admission dean and 30 minutes with a current SI) will take place the week of Monday, April 15.  Both of these will be scheduled via a Google sign-up sheet.

If you don’t know much about the program you can learn more about our current SI’s and reach out with questions here:
