Assistant Residence Hall Director

Apply here by Sunday, April 8th at 11:59pm

The Assistant Residence Hall Director (ARHD) is designed to contribute to the overall mission of Residential and New Student Programs in creating an exceptional on-campus living experience for students.  Cornell's first-year residence halls are communities centered on students’ first year experience; where residents learn to live, socialize, and study at college together. Program Houses are themed communities where residents can develop and immerse themselves in a community with a shared interest and are made up both of first year and upper level students. Upperlevel communities focus on meeting the needs of students as they move further into their college career as well as help transfer students transition to Cornell.

There is currently one ARHD opening for the 2018-2019 school year, and all details can be found on the application link:

Student Staff Spotlight!

Name: Clarence

Community: The Tatkon Center for First-Year Students

Semesters as a Student Staff Member: 5 semesters

Favorite Part: My favorite part about working in the Center is that you really feel like all the things you do, no matter how small they might seem, can really make a difference in someone's day. It's rewarding to help others in the first-year community because it makes you more proactive and sociable while also building on your own confidence and skills.

Advice to Candidates: Be genuine and show that you're interested in helping others and getting involved! Here at Tatkon we are open to people from diverse backgrounds and we encourage you to be yourself and show your individual qualities. Working at Tatkon also means being selfless - the first-year community will look to you for inspiration and guidance! And lastly, put on a smile! It's what we're known for.
