International Student Affairs Office is Creates "Hall Hosts" Scholarship Positions

The International Student Affairs Office is starting a new program to help international students adjust to life at Truman. New scholarship job positions of "Hall Hosts" will be created for the 2005-2006 academic year.

International Hall Hosts are students who live in the residence halls and act as an invaluable resource to incoming and current international students. Hall Hosts will be responsible for helping international students get acclimated to their new surroundings in the United States and at Truman. Hall Hosts will also help the students settle into their residence halls and explain the basic workings of the residence halls (including how to use e-mail, do laundry and make out-of-country phone calls). 

Hall Hosts must be living on-campus during the 2005-2006 school year and are required to return to campus by 1 p.m. Aug. 15 for training.  Hall Hosts will also have meetings with their students to pass along information from the International Student Affairs Office. 

All room hours, meetings, and social events will be counted towards the Hall Host's scholarship job requirement. 

If you have any questions or would like to apply for the position, please contact Kara Burns at or 785.5743.
