UNK-Summer Advising and Enrollment for incoming freshmen is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on May 31 at the University of Nebraska at Kearney and will take place on several dates throughout the summer.
Each year, a staff of eight UNK students is chosen to conduct the summer programs. Some of their responsibilities include assisting with registration for classes, conducting campus tours and other general student recruitment duties.
LeeAnn Amm, in UNK’s Office of Admissions said the staff creates an image of the university for new students.
“The staff will help to be the first impression of UNK for the students who participate in the program,” she said.
She also said that the students who were selected as staff members had to first apply for the positions and were then interviewed by a panel of Admissions staff. The students who were selected were judged on leadership experience, communication skills, their personable qualities and by recommendations of three references.
