2018 Summer STARS Application Information

Are you looking for a position that will provide you leadership skills, an opportunity to make new friends, and a way to have fun while welcoming your peers and community members to Dominican University??  If so - consider applying for the Summer STARS position.  Summer STARS are Students To Assist Rising Stars, and the job they hold over the summer is integral to the Orientation program and the summer conferences hosted at the university.  
Below is the SOAR Leader Position Description Form that applicants must review and complete by March 2nd @ 5pm.  Applications must be completed online and submitted automatically for review.  For questions about the SOAR Leader positions or application process, please contact Michael Lango at or 708-524-6037.
There are no Handouts for this portlet.
What if I am planning a vacation during the summer?  We still encourage you to apply.  We understand that students may have vacation plans, internships, or other opportunities during the summer.  Our plan is to hire the best students, and we will try to work with other schedules as much as possible.  However, the hiring decision will include factors such as availability.
What if I am planning on taking classes during the summer?  This is a great opportunity to live and work on campus while attending class.  Again, we will try to work with the schedules for those students who are offered a position.
What if I am a returning Summer STARS/Torch leader?  Will I have to interview? You still need to review the positions descriptions as some changes have been made from previous years.  Returners will also need to complete the application and participate in the interview process.  Past inclusion in the program does not guarantee a future position.
What if I cannot make any of the group interview times because of class conflict? After you submit your application, please forward your class schedule reflecting the conflict to Michael Lango at  If your application is chosen for an interview, the committee will contact you to schedule an alternate interview opportunity.
