This application is currently closed.


Summer Conference Assistants (SCAs) are on-site liaisons between the Summer Conference Leadership team and conference participants. SCAs serve as the initial point of contact for conference participants and are expected to create an atmosphere of helpfulness and friendliness. The SCA duties are related to three general areas: customer service, communication, and safety/security. The SCA position demands skill in time management, flexibility, patience, ability to communicate, and the desire to be part of a supportive team. The SCA is expected to develop a sense of community by initiating and assisting in the social activities and programs requested by the guest staying at Pitzer College. They serve as information resources about residence halls, general campus life, and the surrounding area. The SCA is a vital member of the Office of Student Affairs team serving our summer conference guest needs.

We will also be hiring at least one lifeguard to work with the SCA team to help with groups using the Gold Student Center pool.

Summer Housing Office Assistants (SHOAs) help with administrative and logistics support of our housing operations in the month of August. They come back to campus in early to mid-August to assist with the summer to fall transition of on-campus housing.
