Student Employment Opportunities

The Alumni Association offers employment and volunteer opportunities for University of Michigan students seeking to develop their leadership skills while engaging with their peers and alumni through a variety of programs and resources. Student employees and volunteers embrace the Alumni Association’s mission and core values.

Welcome Wednesdays Team

Be a part of the Alumni Association’s signature event with students. Welcome Wednesdays has been a part of Michigan since 2007 and is made possible by membership dues to the Alumni Association. The Welcome Wednesdays Team is responsible for providing a welcoming environment and establishing a high-quality first impression for attendees.

During the 2019-20 school year, Welcome Wednesdays will be hosted at the University Unions from 9–11 a.m. between the Michigan League Underground and Pierpont Commons main hallway. Student employees will greet students, manage data, hand out bagels, clean tables for the turnaround of students, come up with activities, fill campus partnership tables, and assist with other programming for the event.

These positions require staff to be knowledgeable of programs the Alumni Association offers and serve as an ambassador of the Alumni Association and the University. Welcome Wednesdays is for students, by students.

Camp Michigania

Each summer, 75 individuals are hired to help ensure Camp Michigania Walloon remains the special place it has been for over 50 years. Both current students and alumni can be a part of the Camp Michigania staff. Staff members are hired to work in a specific program area and share responsibilities for the effective functioning of the Camp as a whole. You can expect to work six days per week, and even though working at a family camp offers more off-work hours than a kids’ camp might, you are still expected to be a role model 24 hours per day.
