  • Department description The SES program is a five day engineering camp designed to motivate high school students to enter science and engineering majors in college. It provides participants with a chance to explore possibilities of engineering as a career while living in university residence halls staffed by program counselors. The 40 high school students who are selected for each program session attend special classes taught by engineering faculty and participate in their own engineering projects. Participants experience the outside-of-class aspects of Santa Clara University through afternoon recreational activities and evening programs led by Dorm Counselors.
    Qualifications Currently enrolled undergraduate engineering students preferred. We will be hiring four Dorm Counselors for the team: a mix of female and male candidates encompassing a variety of engineering majors. Dorm Counselors must be a positive role model, a disciplinarian when necessary, be able to create and conduct icebreakers for participants, be an innovative group leader for the duration of the program, and plan and implement afternoon/evening programs and activities. Applicants must have a minimum 2.5 GPA.
    Duties and responsibilities 1. Live in the residence hall for the duration of the program to supervise program participants, ensuring that students are living and acting within the established rules for the program during the evenings. 2. Serve as a mentor, resource and counselor to the high school students who will be attending the program. Lead nightly meetings for your designated small group of 7-8 students. 3. Build a sense of community through evening activities and programs. Dorm Counselors will be paired off and assigned responsibility for leading one evening of the program. For that designated evening, the Dorm Counselor pair will be responsible for facilitating afternoon/evening activities, serving as the main counselors on duty in the residence hall for the night and being the program leaders for the Dorm Counselor Team and student participants.
