    Application Instructions

    The online application will be made available on this site beginning February 2nd. As you go through the application process, we know you may have many questions. Please read this page, the job descriptions and requirements of each position very carefully before applying to make sure you not only qualify for these positions, but also have a genuine interest before making the decision to apply.

    When you go through the application, please be prepared to complete the application once you have started. This application does not have the ability to be saved and continued at a later time. Below you will find the essay questions for the application:

    • Why are you interested in the student leader position(s) you have applied for? 
    • What do you consider to be the most pressing issues Hamline students face? 
    • How would you, as a student leader, challenge yourself and others to think critically about diversity-related topics? 
    • What does being a role model mean to you? How would you apply this philosophy to your position as a student leader?   

    We encourage you to write your answers to these questions in Microsoft Word and at the time of applying copy and paste your answers into the fields provided. By doing this, you not only finish the application without losing information, but you also you have the opportunity to grammatically check your writing before submission.


    Although you will complete a single online application form for all of the positions available through the selection process, each Office/Program area will be conducting their own separate interviews. This is important to note because the interview process may differ great for each position that you apply. For example, one position may require you to participate in a group process interview and an individual interview, while another position may only schedule an individual interview for the top applicants. Be sure to take your time and note the specific requirements for EACH position, prior to submitting your application. 

    In the event that you need to refer to interview information after you've submitted your application, you can contact the appropriate staff member or we've created an Interview Cheat Sheet that includes links for interview signup.
