STARS College is a three-day experience for undergraduates interested in learning more about Student Affairs and the Housing profession, occurring right before the summer Association of College & University Housing Officers-International Annual Convention & Exhibition. Blending large group presentations, interactive activities, roleplay situations, self-evaluation, and small mentoring groups, STARS presents the world of Housing to those interested in the field. Each participant will be asked to have an "on-campus mentor," who will play a vital role in continued mentoring and exposure to the field after STARS.
STARS College will accommodate up to 40 current sophomores and juniors who are interested in pursuing a career in housing. Participants must have at least one full year of undergraduate college left after August of the current year, and must have demonstrated significant interest in Housing / Residential Life / Student Affairs through their involvement and / or work experience during their time as an undergrad.
